May-June Food Service

 
May 11, 2020
 
Dear Parents,
 
Beginning Monday, May 18, 2020, the Grandville Food Service meal pickup times will run from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at all distribution locations —Grandville High School, Grandville Middle School, Cummings Elementary and Ferrand Estates Community Room.
 
The change is needed as warmer temperatures are anticipated for the remainder of May and June; adjusting the pickup times helps ensure the food is kept at proper temperatures at all of our locations. Here is a revised schedule of serving dates and times:
 
• May 11, 13 & 15 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
• May 18, 20, 22, 27, 29 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
• June 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26, 29 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
 
We are aware that many families may be experiencing a reduction or loss of income due to the closures affecting all of us. Please know that we can continue to accept applications for free and reduced-price meals during the school closure. (If you’ve already been approved for this school year, there is no need to re-apply.)
 
You can apply online at: Free/Reduced Meal Application.
 
There are many more benefits that are available for families based on free and/or reduced meal benefit eligibility status, including the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT). More information regarding P-EBT can be found at michigan.gov. We strongly encourage you to apply if your family situation has changed, or you didn’t apply in the past. Please remember that your children’s benefit eligibility status will remain in effect for the first 30 operating days of the 2020-2021 school year.
 
Please call Whitney at 616-254-6404 for further information, or questions.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jeff Ward
Food Service Director
