Food Resources

Remote meals ending: With a majority of students moving to full in-person learning and low utilization of meal pickups, we will no longer be providing meals for pickup. Schools are able to work with families who need assistance. The following food options are also available for families:

  • Weekend meal bags: Students will pick up bags before leaving school on Fridays. Bags can be picked up at the YMCA on Fridays (info below); we are also working with other community partners to distribute bags.

  • YMCA grab-and-go meals: The YMCA of Downtown Manchester continues to offer grab-and-go meals for youths 18 and younger Monday through Friday. You can pick up meals on the Stark Street side of the building between the hours of 4:30 and 5:30 pm.

  • Food pantries: We have updated our list of area food pantries. You can find the updated list here.

The following are meal options available during the summer from our community partners:
