Following the most recent waiver by the USDA and Governor Mills' March 31 Executive Order, RSU 2 has revised its meal site schedule to enhance safety while continuing to provide children with breakfast and lunch meal provisions 7 days per week. Changes include
- More meals per pickup; fewer trips to sites: See calendar for details.
- Extended pick-up Hours on site days: 10:30-12:30 at each location
- School-based locations for Hall-Dale area: Two Hall-Dale sites will open, one at the elementary school and one at the middle/high School. The Farmingdale parking lot site will be closed after Monday, April 6.
