Everett Public Schools and other county school districts routinely serve breakfast and lunches to students in the summer as part of a federal summer food program.

“We know many of our families depend upon our summer food program, and we anticipate they will also be relying on us for meals when schools are closed on May 22,” noted Superintendent Gary Cohn.

“Our food and nutrition department responded very quickly to news of the closure, and I’m pleased that we can offer lunch to families whose children need food.”
