The city has announced a revised scheduled for distributing free, cold breakfasts and lunches to youths in Evanston during the novel coronavirus shutdown of Evanston’s schools.

Daily distributions will continue to be done today and Friday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

But beginning on Monday, March 23, five days worth of breakfasts and lunches can be picked up between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Mondays only, to reduce the number of times participants need to leave their homes.

The distribution locations are:

  • 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.

The meal progarm is a collaborative effort of the city, Evanston/Skokie School District 65, and ETHS District 202.

    Does the child need to come with the parent? Will parents or guardians without documents in hand be turned away?
