EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation has partnered with AmeriQual Group to provide meal kits for local students. The EVSC has purchased 12,000 meal kits that, like the current lunch and breakfast meals the district is providing, will include meals for all children 18 and under.
Each meal kit provided by AmeriQual will include 20 meals, two weeks worth of breakfasts and lunches for children under 18. The EVSC will also provide a gallon and a half of cold milk with each meal kit. Parents should be prepared for the size and weight of the meal kits, which will be much larger than what students currently receive, and the amount of milk will be significant. Those who walk to pick up locations are encouraged to bring back packs, wagons or strollers.
Meal kits will first be distributed on Wednesday, April 29, and will be available at the EVSC’s current “grab & go” lunch sites. The new meal kits will replace the EVSC’s current “grab & go” lunches. Meal kits will be available for pick up at Caze, Cedar Hall, Delaware, Dexter, Evans, Glenwood, Harper, Hebron, Lincoln, Lodge, Stringtown, Tekoppel, Vogel, Highland, and Stockwell. Satellite sites include The Arbors, Pleasant Ridge, Howell Baptist Church, and Grandin Pointe. Meals will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the school sites and various times at the satellite sites. To see a full list of locations and pick up times, visit evscschools.com.
