The Lawrence Public Schools will continue its distribution of food to children 18 and under who live in Nassau County. To be eligible Children that attend a school currently providing any federal child nutrition program (not just those participating in NSLP) are not eligible for the Lawrence UFSD meal distribution. It cannot be stressed enough that duplication is absolutely forbidden. By signing up and picking up food you are assuring the Lawrence School District you have not picked up form any other location.
There is a new sign up form which was designed to ensure no duplication and only eligible schools may participate. For your convenience please utilize the same phone number every week.
The eligibility requirements:
· Children 18 years and younger
· Every child must be registered
· You must live in Nassau County
· You must enter the child’s name and eligible school

Beginning this week, boxes will be distributed based on number of eligible children.
