ALBUQUERQUE – Grab and Go meal sites at dozens of Albuquerque Public Schools will be closed Friday, April 10, for the Vernal Holiday. On Thursday, April 9, students will get meals for the day as well as food that can be prepared the following day.
Beginning next week, the week of April 13, APS is reducing the days and times of meal distribution. Meals can be picked up from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays only. Students will receive meals for the day as well as meals that can be prepared the next day. The new schedule provides meals for six days a week. It also relieves the burden on food workers who have done a tremendous job on the frontlines during this public health crisis.
Children are expected to be in the vehicle when meals are picked up. If they have an online or televised class that conflicts with meal distribution, parents may pick up the meals for them as long as they can show their child’s student ID or report card.
