ESM Breakfast & Lunch Program During State of EmergencyESM will offer a free Breakfast and Lunch Program during the State of Emergency.
Starting Monday, March 30, 2020, ESM will deliver breakfast and lunch meals free of charge to all ESM families that sign up for delivery. As of that date, on-site meal pickup at East Syracuse Elementary School will be discontinued, and meals will only be delivered directly to homes.
Meals are only for children age 18 and younger (including children who are not school-age). Delivery will continue throughout the State of Emergency, including the previously scheduled Spring recess.
Meals will be delivered Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Two days’ of meals will be delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Those who sign up for delivery are asked to please leave a balloon, box, cooler, sign or other item out to help us identify where to leave meals. For delivery, someone needs to be home from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., but they will not need to come to the door.
