No food distribution over Spring Break

Dearborn Public Schools will not be distributing free student meals on March 31.  Students and most staff are on spring break that week, and schools will be closed.

Families who use the free meal program are encouraged to make sure they stop by a pickup on Wednesday, March 24, to get food for their students.

The district distributes food on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the weeks that students are in school.

Pickup is available at Bryant Middle, Dearborn High, Edsel Ford High, Fordson High, Lowrey, McCollough-Unis, Salina Intermediate, Smith Middle, Stout Middle, and Woodworth Middle schools. 

Family members can pick up a bag or box containing a week’s worth of food for any Dearborn Public Schools student or sibling younger than 18 in the household.  No ID is required, and the student does not need to attend that building or come with the adult picking up the food.

Dearborn Public Schools has been distributing free meals since shortly after the schools were forced to close in March 2020.  Recently, we have been distributing more than 100,000 meals a week.  The district has distributed more than 3.6 million free meals since the initial shut down.
