School Kids Program (SKiP)
SKiP is available during the upcoming school vacations in 2020:
February 24 to March 3 and April 20 to 24
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 the 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, bananas, bread, peanut butter, jelly, carrots, and applesauce for each child in the home.
Registration for our 2020 school vacation SKiP program is open until February 14th.
Register in person at the Food Shelf, or by completing the electronic form below, or by printing and completing this form. Completed forms may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submitted it in person or by mail to the Food Shelf by February 14th, 2020.
February Vacation Pick Up Times:
For the February break, we ask that families pick up their school vacation food bags at the Randolph Area Food Shelf (on Prince Street, next to the bowling alley) on either:
Thursday, February 20 at 4-6 pm
Saturday, February 22 at 11 am-1 pm
For more information, please contact email@example.com.
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.
