Dear ALA Families
We are pleased to announce that beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, ALA will provide grab-and-go lunches at its Anthem, San Tan Valley, and Ironwood Elementary campuses from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM throughout the duration of the state-mandated school closure. Any family may receive free lunches for all of their children ages 0-18 at these locations. Please note that your children must be physically present in order to receive a lunch. We are unable to serve lunches to participants who are not present to receive them, per USDA meal service guidelines.
Please adhere to the following procedures as your family arrives to campus to pick up lunches for your children:
- Families walking to campuses will be directed to the Front Office area, where a grab and go pick up area will be set up.
- Families driving to campus will proceed through the back of the school, following the same procedures as the daily driveline. Students must be in the car to receive the meal, and will be handed it directly. There will be no need to get out of the vehicle.
- Meals must be consumed at home or off site.
If your family is not in close proximity to our Anthem, San Tan, or Ironwood campuses where we have established the grab-and-go lunches, we encourage you to check out additional locations where your children can be provided free meals during the state-mandated school closure.
Many District schools have set up, or are in the process of setting up, sites that may be convenient for your family. Please check out the links below for more information regarding meals at the following districts:
