March Hot Meal and Food Pantry Distribution Calendar – Southcentral


The Anchorage School District will continue to feed students during the extended school break through May 1st. ASD students do need their own transportation to the distribution centers and must be present to pick up food OR the parent must provide student ID cards. At the site a district employee will greet them at the entrance and will hand them a to-go breakfast and lunch. Meals will be provided for the one day. Students will need to return to acquire an additional meal the following day.

ASD also currently has eight bus routes scheduled weekdays through May 1st to distribute the same meals in neighborhoods where children and families will have easier access to the distribution. Find the route or school most convenient for you here.
