The Franklin Special School District will continue to provide free meals for children ages 18 and under throughout the summer. Using the USDA’s COVID-19 Emergency Feeding program, we will continue to provide free breakfast and lunch from May 28 – July 27 on Monday and Thursday. The drive-through sites of Poplar Grove and Liberty Elementary will continue to provide “grab and go” bags filled with multiple days of food on Mondays and Thursdays between 11:00 and 12:30. These food bags will also be handed out at the same select bus stops and times that were used during the school closure. You can find these bus stops online at

The only exception to this schedule will be the week of July 6th -10th when the district is closed.

The FSSD understands that unique needs exist during these difficult times and our goal is to reduce barriers for families to feed children over the summer. Please remember that there are no eligibility requirements and no questions asked at our drive-through or drop-off sites. Children do not have to attend an FSSD school or live in the district to receive free meals.
