Food Service Program
AASD SUMMER FOOD PROGRAM DISTRIBUTION BEGINS JUNE 10
The Altoona Area School District will operate its annual Summer Food Service Program under a new format with the first distribution beginning June 10 and running through July 29, 2020. Each weekly distribution will contain five breakfast and five lunch meals and is available free to all children, 18 years of age or younger at each distribution. Online orders are currently being accepted for the June 10 distribution.
Orders may be picked up on Wednesday of each week, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., at one of four preselected distribution sites: Altoona Area Junior High School, Irving Elementary, Logan Elementary, and Baker Elementary Schools.
Meal orders will be accepted the week prior to each Wednesday distribution. Online orders will be accepted at www.aasdcat.com (linked in the Latest News section) or by calling 946-8270. All orders must be submitted by Friday at 10 a.m. A new order form will need to be submitted each week.
