Everyone will have masks on, wear gloves and keep all surfaces sanitized. No one will come inside and they will use the side door to hand out the lunches and grab and go breakfasts.

Volunteers pass out food Monday to kids at the Quail St. JC Club.

Breakfast grab and go bags are available starting at 10 AM. Bagged lunches and cartons of milk are available starting at noon and going till 2 PM Monday through Friday.
