No adults can be fed under this program. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to each child under 18. If the student is enrolled in our schools and is over 19, they can show a district ID.

Purchasing food from farmers to get to community care efforts - families, children, eldersDONATE here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/feeding-local-families-and-supporting-local-farms?utm_medium=email&utm_source=product&utm_campaign=p_email%2B4803-donation-alert-v5"As many of you know, Kingston City Schools are closed for at least the next two weeks - this will have huge impacts on many of the 6,000 children in the school district who depend on their schools for nutrition and regular meals. Many parents are also going to be out of work, and struggling to make ends meet in the coming weeks and months.

At the same time, our farmers are stuck with food that they were planning to sell, and are taking a hit now that farmers markets and other retail outlets are closed.

A coalition of local organizations is raising money to purchase food from local farms which will then go to Family of Woodstock and People's Place to make bagged lunches and hot meals for folks who need access to food. We are also planning to deliver meals to folks who can't leave home. Please consider making a donation of any size to help support our local economy and community members!"

N/A
