To ensure that students can still have nutritious meals while all schools are closed, the School District of Philadelphia, several charter schools, and the Philadelphia Housing Authority are coordinating with the City’s Office of Children and Families to provide grab-and-go meals for children and youth throughout the city.

Not a student? Philadelphia residents impacted by the COVID-19 crisis can pick up a free box of food for their household at several locations throughout the city. Learn more about food sites.

Where to find food and meals:
