The City of Evanston, Evanston/Skokie School District 65, and Evanston Township High School District 202 will be providing an additional food distribution date this week to assist youth who did not receive a meal distribution on Monday.

Youth ages 1 to 18 who did not receive a meal distribution on Monday can pick up free cold breakfasts and lunches on Wednesday, March 25, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Meals will be distributed for the remaining three days of the week (six meals total) at the following locations: 

  • Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.
  • Robert Crown Community Center, 1801 Main St.
  • Kamen Park David Wood Fieldhouse, 1111 South Blvd.
  • Mason Park, Church Street and Florence Avenue

There are no residency or income-based restrictions to participate in the program. Free meals are available to all youth. Meals will be grab-and-go; no meals will be eaten on site.

Meals for the week will also be available at these locations on Monday, March 30, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The City and school districts are working on an improved strategy to meet the demand of a once-a-week pickup.
