The new distribution schedule will be announced at a future date.

GDOE would also like to remind the public that the Grab-N-Go School Meal Program distribution ended on Friday. GDOE would like to thank the roughly 200 school employees, volunteers, and community partners who made the Grab-N-Go School Meal Program possible, according to JIC.
