LPS Meal Delivery Information

In conjunction with the Town of Lee, the Lee Public Schools are actively working to keep everyone well during these challenging times associated with the COVID-19 virus. One particular way that we are striving to be helpful is in regard to meal availability, at least in the foreseeable future. Beginning Tuesday, March 24, we will be making weekly packages of meals available to residents in Lee and Lee PS students from Tyringham. These will consist of five days worth of breakfasts and lunches. In order to assist us in planning for this venture, it will be important for you to let us know if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity. At this time, we are planning to deliver these packages to residents so there will be no need for you to leave home in order to benefit from this service.

It is the Town’s intent to provide for those in need or otherwise grappling with food insecurity during this public health emergency. Town staff and volunteers will deliver any requested meals directly to your residence. Any resident in need of a meal should follow the instructions below:
