Lake County Schools (LCS) will provide free breakfasts and lunches for its students that are 18 years-old and younger during the extended school closure next week, from March 23 through March 27, 2020.
The following distribution sites have been established:
Beverly Shores Elementary at 1108 W. Griffin Road, Leesburg 34748
Eustis Heights Elementary at 250 W. Atwater Ave., Eustis 32726
Groveland Elementary at 930 Parkwood Street, Groveland 34736
Grassy Lake Elementary at 13636 Education Avenue, Minneola 34715
Lost Lake Elementary at 1901 Johns Lake Road, Clermont 34711
Meals will be available for pick-up between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the car loop of each school site.
Staff will distribute the meals directly to those in their vehicle (drive-through service) upon arrival and will hand out meals directly to walkers and bike riders. Students must be present to receive the meals, but are not required to have parents with them. Parents will not be permitted to pick up meals without a student accompanying them.
Based on recommendations from our federal and state leaders, we are asking that all meals be taken home to eat.
In addition to the meals at schools, families in need can go to Lake Cares Food Pantry during their distribution times that are posted on their website. Families that aren’t in need are encouraged to drop off food unopened donations of peanut butter, jelly, pasta and pasta sauce to help bridge the hunger gap during this difficult time.
