- Please bring your own shopping bags if possible.
The goal of our snack program is to support schools in keeping healthy snacks on hand so that no child needs to be hungry during the school day. Snacks are available during the school day for students in all the Arlington Public Schools. Ask your teacher or principal where you can get a snack
Due to the pandemic, we have scaled back our snack program and are encouraging the use of pre-packaged snacks only. We hope to return to snack packing when it is safer. Many schools are soliciting donations of snacks from their community and, when necessary, they can pick up additional snacks from Arlington EATS.
Vacation and Summer Lunch Program
School vacations often mean less food for families. By offering meals when school is not in session, we strive to decrease food insecurity for families who rely on school meals. This summer we will provide pre-packed bags of groceries with nutritious, kid-friendly foods for those in need. Food support is available when school is not in session over the February and April vacation weeks and six weeks in the summer for Arlington students and their families. You can sign-up to participate here. For more information, email email@example.com or call 339-707-6757 x1003.
