Food Delivery Info
Farwell is doing everything within our resources to help our families during this time of unprecedented school closure. Below is some information on our food distribution plan:
Beginning on Tuesday, 3-17-2020, Farwell Area Schools will run a school bus food delivery program. These deliveries will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays for at least the next three weeks, and may be extended if needed. They will include multiple meals.
Our buses will depart for their normal run beginning at 11:00 a.m. Your food delivery time will be approximately 5 hours later than your normal morning pick up time.
One family member may pick up meals for all members of the family 18 and under. We will also include some educational resources with each delivery. We will also have links to educational resources loaded to our Facebook page and the district's website.
We will still offer pick up at the Farwell Area Schools from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm at the JPAC 'Bubble' entrance.
Anyone not wanting a food delivery can contact our transportation department at (989) 588-9111.
