Summer Lunches 2018
Arlington Public Schools offer free and reduced price lunches that feed more than 650 qualifying students on school days. When school is not in session, family food resources are often stretched. Arlington EATS’ mission is to make sure that our students have healthy, nutritious food over the long summer vacation, February and April vacation and over the weekends. Arlington EATS helps our students Eat All Through Summer and the school year!
Arlington EATS Summer Lunches will be held July 9 – August 16, 12:00PM – 1:00PM, Monday-Thursday. Please join us for good food and company. In addition to lunch, EATS will offer a daily pantry with an assortment of fresh produce, pantry staples and other food items.
On June 14, many of our community members will be with their families and friends celebrating the end of Ramadan. Arlington EATS has made the decision not to hold a Community Dinner on June 14, in recognition of this.
Instead, we will hold a robust Pop-Up Pantry on Thursday, June 21, from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM. The usual array of proteins, produce, eggs, milk and pantry items will be available, in addition to a number of other items that will help families get stocked up for the summer break.
Please remember to bring your reusable shopping bags.
We look forward to seeing you!
On this week and always, we offer our profound
