OSD Provides Meals at Seven Locations
Oxford, Mississippi (March 16, 2020) — The Oxford School District will continue to provide nutritious meals to students during the temporary closure of schools in six locations throughout the Oxford-Lafayette community. Beginning Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, March 27, OSD will provide free meals on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for ALL children (18 years of age and under). Adults can also purchase meals for $2 at these locations.
Students do not need to enter a building for pick-up. Families should look for an OSD school bus in the parking lot at each location. Meals will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Because this is a U.S. Department of Agriculture program, Lafayette County School students and families may also take advantage of these nutritious meals.
Meal Pick-Up Sites* from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.:
- Oxford Middle School (222 Bramlett Boulevard)
- Wayne Johnson Apartments (2223 Delores Drive)
- Brittany Woods Subdivision (Hwy 6)
- C.B. Webb Townhomes (900 Molly Barr Road)
- Western Hills Area (Near Anchorage Road)
- Oasis Church (861 MS-6 West)
- NEW! Springhill Area at Our Store Grocery (71 CR 105)
*These locations are subject to change.
The USDA waiver allows the OSD to provide breakfasts and lunches as the need continues during school closures. We also have the support of a local nonprofit organization, LovePacks, which provides additional food to more than 200 students for weekends and holidays. More information will be forthcoming on how our community can support LovePacks.
