BPS Food Service
All students attending hybrid learning will receive a 5-day meal pack on either Tuesday or Friday before leaving for the day. Additionally, students who participate in remote learning only may also pick up meal packs at one of SuperSite locations throughout Boston on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10AM-6PM Super Sites!
Families will also continue to receive funds for the present time on the EBT cards distributed in the spring. If you are not in need of these funds and can donate them, please use these funds to purchase gift cards at a grocery store near you. You can send these gift cards to the school or reach out to the Haley Parent Council at Haleyparentcouncil@gmail.com. We will redistribute these to our families in highest need. You can also make donations directly at http://www.haleypilotschool.org/
Project Bread's FoodSource Hotline offers free food assistance to all Mass. residents. Call 800-645-8333, 8 am - 7 pm, Monday-Friday; 10 am - 2 pm, Saturday.
