Who can get meals?

Meals are for children under the age of 19 (so, 18 *and* under).

  • A parent or caregiver may come pick up meals for their children.
  • Children may come pick up their own meals.

What do I need to bring?

You do not need to bring anything.

How do I get the meals?

Come to Fourth Presbyterian Church at 340 Dorchester Street.  There will be a tent in the yard off of Dorchester Street – you may drive up or walk up to pick up food.

Can I eat the food at the church?

NO.  Food is to-go ONLY.

I don’t live in South Boston – can I still get meals for my children?

Yes – just tell us where your child goes to school.

I’m not part of this church… can I still get meals?
