Meaningful Meals – FREE Healthy Food Boxes for Families! & Virtual Cooking Classes
Posted by School District of Philadelphia on December 8, 2020
The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia has been awarded $100,000 by the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation to launch the new Meaningful Meals program to provide Philadelphia families in low-income neighborhoods with boxes of healthy food. The Meaningful Meals program is separate from the District’s Grab & Go meals program and the City of Philadelphia’s Food Distribution Sites.
Families will be able to pick up 20-pound food boxes of food – 10 pounds of fruits and vegetables, 5 pounds of meat, and 5 pounds of dairy. Food distribution will occur every two weeks with drive- and walk-up access. No identification is required! Please wear a mask.
Families can also sign up for a five-session series of virtual cooking classes to create healthy and delicious meals with their food boxes. The Meaningful Meals website also has recipes for your family to cook together.
