Schools help distribute holiday meal boxes to those in need
Local schools are teaming up with the York County Food Bank to help out families with holiday meals.
The York City School District posted earlier this month on Facebook that registration for Give a Meal has kicked off. Meals containing a meal kit and a turkey come from the food bank, which also is giving each household a $20 gift card.
Registration ends at midnight on Nov. 27, and the district asks families to only register one student per household. Registration forms can be found online at https://forms.gle/fbfRYhsqfVt4F3Xz7.
The kits will be available in December for families to pick up from the student's schools.
South Eastern School District's Social Services Department is also working to distribute meal boxes for Thanksgiving and December. The November box will be delivered to porches on Nov. 22 with nonperishable food. The December holiday box will be delivered Dec. 22 with nonperishable food and a personal hygiene kit.
To sign up, call Miranda Baker, elementary social services coordinator, or Jodi Smith, secondary social services coordinator, through their schools or email them at BakerM@SESD.K12.PA.US or SmithJo@SESD.K12.PA.US.
