Fayetteville Public Schools announces plan to feed students if schools close

Fayetteville Public Schools on Friday announced plans to help feed students in need in case the district is forced to close as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

School officials posted that the district is currently seeking USDA approval to implement a feeding program for any child in the district.

Once approved, the program will offer “grab and go” lunch at Owl Creek Schools, and at other locations throughout the district via the FPS food truck.

Specific locations of the food truck will be announced at a later date.

The program would be free, and available to any child 18 years old or younger.

For more information, see the announcement on Facebook, or visit the FPS website.
