QPS School Children Meal Packs

Posted on January 13, 2017

In light of the pending QPS Strike, Quincy Catholic Charities has partnered with Hy-Vee, Sam's, Prairie Farms, Sara Lee, Pepperidge Farms and Sunbeam to offer a children's meal pack, consisting of 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches, per child. The meals have been put together to help provide kid-friendly, wholesome nutrition to children that are unable to access other area resources during the strike. The first distribution of these packs will begin Monday, January 16, 2017 from 4:30-6:30 at QCC, 620 Maine Street. This distribution will be in addition to normal food pantry distributions, meaning clients that have already received food for January are still eligible to receive this package. These meal packs are intended for QPS students only and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis to families in need. Additional support will be determined mid-week and information will be relayed accordingly. Thank you to the generous sponsors and donors for making these meal packs possible for our precious children!
