The Sheridan School District will provide Grab-and-Go meals next week, Monday-Friday (March 16-20), for children up to age 18 at the front entrances of Sheridan Elementary School and East End Middle School. Meals can be picked up from 10:45 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Children do not have to attend Sheridan Schools to participate but must be present to receive the meal.
In addition, volunteers from both the Sheridan and East End areas will provide the following services to ensure children in our area do not go hungry while our schools are closed.
A group of volunteers led by the First Assembly of God Church in Sheridan will deliver meals not picked up at Sheridan Elementary School to the Grant County areas where deliveries were made in the summer feeding program. These meals will be delivered Monday-Friday (March 16-20).
Another group of community volunteers will deliver a box of food to the families who participated in the summer feeding program on Tuesday, March 17 AND on Tuesday, March 24, beginning at 11 a.m. on both days. The food is provided by the Arkansas Foodbank and will contain canned vegetables and fruit, bottled water, proteins such as rice, mac and cheese, or peanut butter, and a breakfast item such as cereal, pop tarts, or oatmeal. Boxes can also be picked up at Leola Missionary Baptist Church, Poyen High School, and the parking lot at the Grapevine Church of God in Christ. Families who did not participate in the summer feeding program and need food for their children, can call Kathy’s Closet between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm at (870) 942-7611 and make arrangements to pick up a box there.
The Well in East End will be delivering meals to families for the next two weeks, Monday - Friday. The Well will also provide backpacks filled with food to children on Friday, March 20 AND Friday, March 27. If your family is in need of food for your children and you have not already made arrangements with The Well, you can contact Chuck Sanders at (501) 681-4928 or send a direct message to The Well Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/thewelljohn4ministries/.
