APS is distributing free breakfast, lunch and dinner at 16 locations to ALL children 18 and under. The meals, which include vegetarian options, will be available together for pickup through a grab-and-go system every Monday through Friday throughout the extended school closure.

APS is providing meals at as many locations as possible to reduce travel distances for families. You will notice that the windows for meal pick up are 25 minutes long. Although this may seem short, we believe this window will allow us to provide for a grab-and-go system while also helping us maximize the number of pick-up locations and serve the highest number of families throughout the district. Please note the locations and times below.

I am privileged to be part of such a fine faculty that daily puts forth remarkable efforts as advocates and educators. Inclusivity is at the heart of day-to-day life at Vanguard.
