In partnership with Maury County Schools, The Well Outreach food pantry will be offering free food packs to students in need on Thursday, Jan. 14, at two Maury County schools; Spring Hill High School and Columbia Central High School.
The food pack distributions are part of The Well's new Galilee Food Pack Program, a program aimed at supporting students in need after the ongoing pandemic has seen many students transition to remote learning.
Tennessee had more than 987,000 students receiving free or reduced lunches in 2019. With almost 21% of Tennessee students receiving free or reduced lunches, and 55% of Tennessee students eligible for such programs, the Volunteer State ranks as having the 10th highest number of students receiving subsidized meals in the nation.
Food pack distributions will be held at Spring Hill High School — 1 Raider Ln — from 12 -1:30 a.m., at the north side of the school, and at Columbia Central High School — 921 Lion Pkwy — from 10 to 11:30 a.m., at the bus ramps on the north side of the building.
Food packs contain 10 meals and 10 snacks, with any student from any school being eligible for assistance.
