St. Mary Parish School Board Adds Another Site to Emergency Feeding Program
St. Mary Parish Schools recently announced the initiation of an emergency feeding program for students
ages 18 and under beginning Monday, March 23, 2020. The program will continue throughout the school
shutdown, ending on Thursday, April 9, 2020. Meals will be available for pick-up each weekday from 10:30
a.m.- 12:00 p.m. at four school sites:
Franklin Junior High School, 525 Morris Street, Franklin
Patterson Junior High School, 225 Catherine St, Patterson
Morgan City Junior High School, 911 Marguerite Street, Morgan City
NEW SITE: Raintree Elementary School, 501 Raintree Drive, Baldwin
A “Grab N’ Go” style breakfast and lunch will be served curbside at each of the four school sites. No meals
will be able to be eaten on-site and given the country’s imposed social distancing limits, no one will be
allowed to remain or loiter at the site.
Any child age 18 or under is eligible to receive the free meals and must be present to pick-up a meal. Each of
the four school sites will have a pre-determined number of meals. Therefore, once the supply of meals has
been exhausted, no additional meals will be available until the following day.
The school system endeavors to keep kids healthy and fed throughout the school shutdown period and
appreciates the assistance of various personnel in implementing the emergency feeding program for the
children of St. Mary Parish.
