Starting on Friday, May 1, Greater Albany Public Schools will be able to reach more children in need as two new bus routes will begin delivering free meals. The routes are being added in addition to the 17 locations currently serving free breakfast and lunch for all children age 1-18.
The two routes will cover a large portion of the Albany community and help reach students that may have been unable to easily reach the meal locations. Each route will have a driver and a second staff member handing out food.
Where feasible, buses will pull off the road before opening the door to distribute. Where a road stop is the only option, the bus will use it’s red lights to stop traffic as if they were loading students. Families and children are asked to maintain normal social distancing at the designated stops.
Maps of the two routes as well as scheduled stop times and locations are listed below. Buses won’t arrive or leave early, but may arrive late depending on demand or traffic delays at earlier stops.
