Thanks to funding from the federal government and other sources, the Colonial School District will continue its meal service through the second week in August. However, the meal pick-up location has changed because of construction activity on the Colonial Elementary School/Plymouth Whitemarsh High School campus.

Beginning Monday, June 29, meals will be available at Plymouth Elementary School, 542 Plymouth Road in Plymouth Meeting. Immediately after turning into the school driveway, families should turn right and drive down the hill towards the playground located behind the school. Signage will be in place to provide direction and District staff members will be visible distributing meals.

Meals are provided to all school-age members of the Colonial community who are under 18-years-old and in need (and Colonial students over 18 with special needs). Meals are available between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Next week, meals will be available on Monday and Wednesday. Beginning July 6, meals will be available on Mondays and Thursdays.

Additionally, families are encouraged to apply for free/reduced price school meals for the 2020-2021 school year. Children who are approved for free/reduced price meals now will remain eligible for at least the first 30 operating days of the new school year. Click here to visit www.schoolcafe.com to submit a meal application.
