REVISED March 18, 2020
Chelsea Massachusetts
Governor Baker has ordered that all schools in Massachusetts, including Chelsea
Public Schools, will be closed until Tuesday, April 7th
, 2020, if not longer. While
Chelsea schools are closed, free lunch and breakfast for children and youth will be
provided on week days at seven different locations.
Food will be “grab and go” which means that participants will pick up a
bagged lunch and breakfast, and can take it home with them. The
following procedures will be in place:
– Wait quietly and respectfully in line
– Maintain a separation of 6 feet between yourself and the next family group
– All children in Chelsea are eligible
– Children do not need to be present for families to pick up a meal
– Meals will be available between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm
You should go to the site closest to your home. There is no need to go to your
child’s school site – the meals at all locations will be the same. We ask that
participants walk or take alternative modes of transportation to the site nearest to
your home. Parking at these sites is limited.
Emergency School Food Program Locations are:
– Early Learning Center courtyard (Shurtleff Street side)
– Mary C. Burke Complex Parking Lot
– Williams Middle School Parking Lot
– Clark Avenue Middle School front entrance
– Chelsea High School front entrance
– St. Rose School courtyard
– Voke Park (Washington Avenue)
These sites are subject to change, but signs will be posted directing people to other
sites if this occurs.
