While the Greenwich Public Schools are closed, they will be providing breakfast and lunch for students who are eligible for free and reduced lunch during the school week Monday-Friday. Both meals will be delivered at the same time. This will begin on Monday, March 16th.
A small yellow school bus will arrive at 12 locations around town families to pick up food. The GPS is asking that families arrive at their location at least 5 minutes before the scheduled stop. The bus will be at the location for 20 minutes. Families will be asked to identify themselves so names may be checked off for bagged meals of breakfast and lunch.
