          • All parents who need food for their children are welcome and encouraged to go one of the pickup sites (click here to see a one-page flyer with times and locations, three of which are schools).
          • Those families whose children are served by our Nutrition-on-the-Weekend program should hear from Jeff Grant at iServe Ministries directly.
          • Those who are not part of the weekend program and need additional help with food for their children can reach out to our school social workers by calling one of the three numbers that follow: 706-387-7390 or 706-387-7391 or 706-387-7392.

The school system, working with local partners, has provided 74,000 pounds of food to local families in the first few days of school closure, which began March 16; information about organizations that can provide additional assistance is listed on the second page of the document.
