UPDATE: Due to the volume of breakfasts and lunches being served, Washington Local will have a single pick-up location and a one-day-per-week distribution beginning on Tuesday, March 24. There will be no lunch delivery on Monday, March 23.
All lunch delivery will take place at Whitmer High School each Tuesday going forward and will be offered as a drive up or walk up service between the extended hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. On Tuesday, our first distribution will include breakfast and lunch for five days. This will ensure fewer outings for families and our employees. Our bus distribution routes will still be in operation, although we expect the route to take longer. We will also only run the buses on Tuesday and route information can be found here.
