School Kids Program (SKiP)
SKiP will be available during February and April vacations in 2023.
Many of the children who live in the Randolph area receive free breakfast and lunch during the school year. To help make up for the loss of school meals during school vacations, the Randolph Area Food Shelf provides food supplements for families with young children.
During each vacation, participants will receive a week’s supply of cereal, milk, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, meat, cheese, and snacks for each child in the home.
Children of all ages are welcome. You do not need to qualify for the free and reduced lunch program to participate in SKiP.
Registration for February 2023 SKiP is now open. You must register by February 10th. Register using the online form below or print a paper form and drop your completed form at the Food Shelf.
Pick up your February and April SKiP bags at the Food Shelf on:
Thursday, February 16th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.
Thursday, April 20th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.

SKiP originally stood for “Summer Kids Lunch Program” and was initiated by the Randolph Area Food Shelf in 2014. Its purpose was to provide free lunches five days a week during the summer when free or reduced price lunches were not available to students.
The program was expanded during the 2014-2015 school year to include the February and April school vacation weeks and the name of the program was changed to "School Kids Program."
To continue operating and serving children in need, SKiP relies on the generosity of volunteers. Through the summer months, as well as during the February and April vacation weeks, we need your help. Please complete our online volunteer application if you can contribute volunteer time or our donation page if you can offer financial support.
