Due to recent changes by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Joliet Public Schools District 86 is now able to offer free grab-and-go meals for any child 18 years or younger.

The meals are available for curbside pick-up on Mondays and Thursdays at Hufford and Washington Junior High Schools from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. and from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Dirksen, Gompers, Hufford and Washington Junior High Schools in Joliet.

Monday meals include enough food for three breakfasts and three lunches and Thursday meals provide food for two breakfasts and two lunches.

The contactless distributions will occur in the Midland Avenue parking lot at Dirksen, the Briggs Street parking lot at Gompers, the Ingalls Avenue parking lot at Hufford, and the Fourth Avenue parking lot at Washington Junior High School.

Joliet Public Schools District 86 has provided over 425,000 Grab and Go meals for children since mid-March.
