Dear Dover School Parents and Guardians,


Food distribution for all students will begin on Thursday, March 19, 2020. Each day two meals will be provided. Participants will receive a lunch for the day that will include breakfast for the following day. For example: Thursday’s meal will include Thursday’s lunch and Friday’s breakfast. Friday’s lunch will include Saturday’s breakfast. STUDENTS IN ALL GRADE LEVELS IN THE DOVER SCHOOL DISTRICT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE QUALIFIED FOR FREE AND REDUCED MEALS, MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.

A Dover School Bus will be parked in the designated locations below from 10:00 - 10:30 a.m. to distribute the meals. Please pick-up from the location closest to your home address and use it consistently, as this will allow Café Services to have an accurate count for the number of meals needed each day.
