Food Resources for Students

Shared by Superintendent Grady

Students and families- Maintaining health through appropriate nutrition is important over the next couple of weeks.  In an effort to try and help ensure our student’s well-being we are offering the following list of resources available to students to ensure access to meals.   The resources are broken down by town and indicate how to access these meals depending on where you live.  If you have any questions about these resources please feel free to email me at jkratz@mccanntech.org and I will try to help you the best I can.
