Bordeaux Early Learning Center, Park Avenue Elementary and DuPont Hadley Middle Prep will not have food boxes available as they did on Thursday. Location changes are based on the demand seen and need expressed last week.

Each site will have around 200 boxes with items like pasta and sauce, peanut butter, canned soups and other non-perishable items. If families have questions about distribution sites, hours or have trouble accessing them, they can call United Way’s 2-1-1 Helpline or the Metro Schools Customer Service Center at (615) 259-INFO (4636).

Food boxes are provided by Second Harvest with help from volunteers through Hands on Nashville. Family Resource Centers are a partnership between Metro Schools and United Way. Distribution locations were determined according to data on student need from Metro Schools and in cooperation with location partners.
