Grab-N-Go Lunch Update: 3/23/20

Starting March 23, 2020, the Grab-N-Go Meal distribution schedule has changed to reduce the amount of contact among our staff and the number of times families must leave their homes to pick up meals. The new meal distribution schedule will be every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The time will remain 11:00am until 1:00pm. The location will remain the front of the Northern Lehigh Middle School. All Northern Lehigh resident children, even if they attend a private or charter school, are eligible to participate. Each bag will have enough food for two days. As always, thank you for our cooperation and flexibility.
