Food Distribution

Food bags


The last day for D47 food distribution for the 2019-20 school year is Wed., May 27, 8am to 10am at Canterbury, Indian Prairie, West and Hannah Beardsley. For everyone’s health and safety, food will be distributed as a “drive-up” service. Parents/ guardians will be asked to drive up to the school’s main entrance and open their trunks so bags can be placed there rather than inside the car. If your child has any food allergies, please check the nutritional labels on food items.
