The city and Evanston school districts will provide an additional food distribution on Wednesday to help youths who did not receive meals distributed Monday.

Youth ages 1 to 18 who didn’t get meals Monday can pick up free cold breakfasts and lunches — three of each — from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at: 

  • Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.
  • Robert Crown Community Center, 1801 Main St.
  • Kamen Park David Wood Fieldhouse, 1111 South Blvd.
  • Mason Park, Church Street and Florence Avenue.

There are no residency or income-based restrictions to participate in the program. Free meals are available to all youth. Meals will be grab-and-go; no meals will be eaten on site.

Meals for the week will also be available at these locations on Monday, March 30, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A news release says the city and school districts 65 and 202 are working on an improved strategy to meet the demand of a once-a-week pickup in the future, as the COVID-19 shutdown of schools continues.
