APS To Offer Free "Grab & Go" Meals

From APS-

Beginning Sept. 8, Albuquerque Public Schools will provide grab and go meals to anyone 18 years of age and under, and APS families will no longer need school-issued tickets to pick up meals.

The district is able to make the changes because the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which provides funding for school meals, extended its summer meals program through Dec. 31. 

Families can pick up a week's worth of meals for each child 18 years of age or younger on Mondays at any APS comprehensive high school as well as at Rudolfo Anaya Elementary School. APS plans to add more meal distribution sites in the coming weeks.

Next week, meals will be distributed on Tuesday, Sept. 8, due to the Labor Day holiday.

Meal Pickup Schedule 

  • Mondays from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 4-5:30 p.m. at any of the 13 APS comprehensive high schools.
  • Mondays from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. only at Rudolfo Anaya Elementary.
  • Families pick up a week's worth of meals.
