MAYS LANDING, N.J. — Children within the Hamilton Township School District will have the chance to get free lunch thanks to the National School Lunch Program’s summer initiative.

Families can pick up free meals from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays at William Davies Middle School. Social distancing measures and precautions are in place as the coronavirus pandemic continues in the United States, and families who don’t have transportation methods to deliver food to and from the middle school can also receive deliveries thanks to staff members and volunteers of the Hamilton Township Education Association.

“We have a family in this district,” HTEA President Amy Gold said. “When things get tough, people step up. That’s always the way it’s been.”
