INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Public Schools began a new meal distribution schedule on Monday.
According to a news release from IPS, prepackaged meals consisting of breakfast, lunch and dinner will only be distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays. Meals previously had been distributed Monday-Friday. IPS said the change will decrease the number of times a week families have to leave their houses.
On Mondays, students will receive six prepackaged meals to cover three meals a day for two days. Nine meals, covering three meals a day for three days, will be handed out on Wednesdays. Meals are available to all students, including non-IPS students, age 18 and younger on a first-come, first-served basis.
The meals will be distributed from the parking lots of 14 IPS schools and two apartment complexes. Meals will be distributed drive-thru style in the parking lot from all locations in order to encourage social distancing, the news release said.
