Meals for Broome County Students To Be Offered
With area schools closed due to concerns over the Corona Virus Broome County Executive Jason Garnar, Allen Buyck who is the District Superintendent and CEO of Broome Tioga Boces and Mark Bordeau, Senior Food Service Director for Broome Tioga Boces outlined details on meal distribution for students.
The plan involves students from K-12 schools in Broome County and the Newark Valley, Owego and Tioga Districts in Tioga County.
Under the distribution plan all students can receive two meals every weekday throughout the time period when schools are closed. Every child 18 and under is eligible to receive meals at the pick-up location nearest them. Meals will be offered on a grab-and-go basis. There are 39 pick-up sites and at least one site open in every school district.
Officials recognize that there are students with special dietary needs and have a number to call to address that issue. It is 607-763-3403. The officials stressed that the public can get the latest information pertaining to their own school district by visiting that district's own website.
