CHILDREN CAN GET FOOD DURING SCHOOL CLOSINGS
Students who rely on school for food will be able to get blizzard and break bags from Camella’s Cupboard, a new group dedicated to providing food to students.
The group will provide supplemental food bags for children who are food insecure in New Milford or Sherman when there is inclement weather and school breaks of two or more days. Families can sign up online through camellascupboard.com. Sign up is always open. All information will be kept confidential.
Scheduled school breaks include Thanksgiving break from Nov. 21 to 23, holiday recess which runs from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, winter recess on Feb. 18 and 19 and spring break April 15 to 19.
Pick up dates will be emailed to families signed up to receive bags. All pickups will be at New Milford Public Schools Administration Offices, 50 East St.
Participants are asked to note if transportation is a barrier for picking up food.
If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about how to volunteer or donate is also available on the group’s website.
