Hart school district providing free meals for children.

HART — With the state-wide school closure over the next three weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak, Hart Public Schools will offer free meals for children Monday, March 16, through Wednesday March 18, at noon at the Crystal Valley Pour House and Fenton Trucking.

The district later added Spitler Elementary School as a third site for meal distribution.

Crystal Valley Pour House is located at 7203 N. 126th Ave. in Crystal Township east of Hart and Fenton Trucking is located at 5655 W. 5th St. in Mears.

“Meals will be distributed outside from school buses to limit potential contagion,” stated HPS Director of Dining Services Caryn Elam.

“Any child, from any school district, age 18 and under, is eligible for these meals. Children do not have to be present — one person may pick up meals for any children in the household,” Elam stated.

“Sack lunches will be available Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, we will be offering a week’s worth of packaged meals — seven breakfasts and seven lunches — at these same locations.

“If you do not have transportation to these locations, and have children that need meals, please contact us as we may be able to make delivery arrangements.

“If you, or someone you know of, needs meals or other assistance, please contact me, Caryn Elam, by PM or email [email protected] We are working with several volunteers and organizations who wish to help their neighbors and may be be able to assist you.”
