Dear SAD 17 Families, June 10, 2020


As the end of this school year has arrived, we are pleased to have been able to continue providing meals to students throughout the pandemic that closed our schools in mid-March.  Today is the final meal delivery for this school year.  In a continued effort to be supportive of families, we have put together information that will connect people with other resources for food needs over the summer as follows:

During this time of uncertainty and unease our staff has enjoyed the notes and pictures from  some of the students to whom we have delivered meals.  Our hope is that students found a measure of comfort in the continuity of not only receiving meals, but also in seeing busses and staff delivering meals, as much as staff did in providing that service.

We wish for you a healthy and renewing summer!


Jodi Truman, MSAD 17 Food Service Director and Staff
