UPDATE — 2:52 pm May 11, 2020: North Jackson meal distribution route will be stopping at the Seasons of Pendergrass pool rather than the leasing office. The time will remain the same, 10:45-11:15. The text below has been updated to reflect the change.
A fourth mobile food pickup route has been added to the stops our bus drivers are making twice a week, providing three more locations to the 10 previously announced.
Beginning Monday, April 13, breakfast and lunch grab-and-go meals will be available on Mondays and Thursdays (with the Monday pickup providing three of each meal and the Thursday pickup providing four of each meal) at the following locations and times:
- 10:00 am – 10:30 am – North Jackson Elementary School – Front Parking Lot – 1880 Old Gainesville Highway, Talmo
- 10:45 am – 11:15 am – Seasons of Pendergrass –
420 Fall Courtcommunity pool – Pendergrass
- 11:30 am – 12:00 noon – Hardin Terrace – 160 Storey Lane – Jefferson
The three additional stops on the north side of the county bring the total number of stops to 13. Meals prepared by our School Nutrition Department staff are offered for approximately 30 minutes at each mobile stop; East Jackson Comprehensive High School will continue to offer the meals between 10 a.m. and noon.
The meals are available for ANY and ALL children 18 and younger — even little ones not yet enrolled in school. No adult meals are available.

The meals are NOT limited to children who participate in the free- and reduced-price meal program in our schools.
We are able to add these three routes because of waivers approved by the funding agency. We will apply for additional waivers as they become available.
In the meantime, if your child’s food needs are not being met by the pickup option, please reach out to one of our school social workers by calling one of the following numbers: 706-387-7390 or 706-387-7391 or 706-387-7392.
