In addition to the two open meal sites at Line Elementary and Massabesic Middle School, we will be implementing a free meal delivery service via specific bus routes starting on Monday, March 23rd. These bus routes have been set up to bring food to the areas in our communities with the highest need. In order to keep the meals as safe as possible and to allow time for staff to safely prepare the meals, we will be doing two deliveries per day. One delivery in the morning for breakfast and one delivery in the afternoon for lunch. The bus routes will run Monday through Friday. Please visit the RSU 57 website or app to access the route map and approximate delivery times. Students will have the option to receive breakfast and lunch each day and on Fridays they will receive two additional meals for the weekend. Our focus is to get meals closer to the students in our district that desperately need them. If your student is in need of meals and you cannot access the daily bus routes or the open meal sites please call 207-247-3221 x2257 and we will do our very best to assist you. The meals available through our two meal sites as well as our specific area bus routes are available to all children 18 and under, free of charge. We want to be able to offer all children in our district the nutrition they need during this closure. In order to continue doing so, we do ask that only families that are in high need receive these meals. We will continue this service as long as our food supply and staffing needs can meet the demand.
