Meals: GIPS Eats

GIPS is dedicated to ensuring all students have access to breakfast and lunch at no cost. 

 

Throughout the summer, Grand Island Public Schools will continue distributing five day’s worth of food for children on one day a week, as we have since late April. This will remain in place until school starts up again in buildings this fall.

Tuesday will remain the distribution day.

In addition, there will  be five distribution locations: Grand Island Senior High, Walnut and Barr Middle Schools, Shoemaker Elementary, and the Kneale Administration Building. There will be two pickup locations at Grand Island Senior High. The time for distribution remains the same (11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.).

 

Each child will receive three bags of food. The above photo is an example of the contents of the bags, the photo below is what the bags will look like.
