Coweta School System to provide Summer Meals program
From Staff Reports
The Summer Meals program will be offered by the Coweta County School System Nutrition employees throughout the summer.
This program is a continuation of the Emergency Student Meal Service which has been provided in the district during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Summer Meals program is part of the federal USDA’s Summer Food Service Program. That program will provide on-site meals during the summer break to children 18 and under, or 21 and under for youth with special needs.
Meals will continue to be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to Noon at the eight Coweta Schools distribution locations:
Newnan High School (pick up at bus loading zone, Armory Road)
Ruth Hill Elementary School (pick-up in car-rider zone, Sunset Lane)
Jefferson Parkway Elementary School (pick-up in car-rider zone, Millard Farmer Industrial Blvd.)
Smokey Road Middle School (pick-up in bus-loading zone, Smokey Road)
Winston Dowdell Academy (pick-up in car-rider zone, Dowdell Street)
East Coweta High School (pick-up in car-rider loop, near front office, Highway 154)
Glanton Elementary School (pick-up in car-rider zone, Highway 29)
Meals will not be available on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25. Meals for May 25 and 26 will be distributed on Friday, May 22. Regular meal service will resume on Wednesday, May 27.
School nutrition employees from across Coweta County work at the Coweta school sites working with school SROs, school system transportation staff and school faculty to coordinate the sites. If a student currently receives a documented Special Diet Meal Accommodation through the School Nutrition Program and wishes to participate, parents can let Keshia Williams know by calling 404-971-5198.
