3.24.2020     New meal pick-up and delivery schedule

NACS Parents/Guardians and Students:  In light of the Governor’s shut-down announcement and our need to protect everyone’s health, NACS is adjusting meal distribution. We will phase into a weekly distribution of meals this week. Starting Tuesday, March 24, we will provide 2 meal kits per student. The next meal distribution will be Thursday, March 26, wherein we will have 3 sets of meals per student ready. Due to the volume of meals, we can no longer insure allergy-free meals. We apologize for that inconvenience. Thank you so much for your flexibility during this unprecedented time; we love y(our) kids.

If your circumstances change, please contact us at (260) 637-3161 or (260) 338-0802 to find out options.
