As the academic school year comes to an end, the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District will continue to serve meals to children in the community throughout the summer months. Families are also encouraged to reach out to WSSD social workers that are helping to connect families to resources at this difficult time. Please stay safe and healthy!

    (205 S. Providence Rd., Wallingford - please use the Brookhaven Road entrance)

    Drive into the loop that goes up to the main doors beneath the Strath Haven High School sign, identify the number of children for whom you are picking up meals, and pop the trunk of your car while remaining inside.

    Our food service staff will place all meals in the trunk of the car to ensure we are limiting contact and practicing safe social distancing.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Barbara Downs, Administrative Assistant, at bdowns@wssd.org.
