Meal distribution begins Wednesday, March 18

Penn Manor is implementing a meal distribution plan for students beginning Wednesday, March 18, that utilizes students’ morning bus stop locations. The free, bagged meals will be delivered by school buses and will include a lunch and breakfast for the following day comprised of foods that meet school nutritional standards.

For elementary students, meals will be delivered by buses at students’ regular bus stops each morning at times that roughly correspond with their regular school pickup times.

Meals for high school and Marticville and Manor middle school students will be delivered each morning to their regular bus stops, but the drop-off times are not the same as their morning school pickup times.

Please see the dropoff schedules for those schools here:

HS meal drop-off schedule
Manor MS meal drop-off schedule
Marticville MS meal drop-off schedule

Buses will stop if someone is visible at each stop. A volunteer onboard each bus will assist with meal bag distribution.

Meals for students who WALK to Penn Manor High School or Eshleman Elementary School may be picked up from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. each morning at Eshleman Elementary School.

At all locations, students need not be present for a family member to pick up their meal bag, and family members may pick up meal bags for all members of their family who attend Penn Manor schools from a single location/stop. Meals may not be picked up for more than one day at a time.

This distribution plan is subject to change in response to the needs of our families/bus drivers.
