As Norwalk enters what we believe could be the peak phase of the COVID-19 coronavirus spread, Norwalk Public Schools will need to take the difficult step of modifying our food distribution model.  School bus meal delivery to bus stops, as well as door-to-door meal deliveries for special education students, will be postponed until further notice. To make sure that students and families still have meal options, we will put an alternate plan in place. 

Starting Monday, March 30 until further notice, meals for student ages 2-18 may now be picked up at 10 food centers across the city (see below) from 12 noon to 2 pm, Monday through Friday. 

At these locations, families will have the option to “drive through” or walk up. For the health and safety of both families and staff, we will require that everyone maintain “social distancing,” meaning 6 feet of physical space between you and a non-family member. Crossing guards and security guards will be available to assist.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
