2020 School Closure Student Meals
As part of the Upper Perkiomen School District's ongoing efforts to ensure that all of our students needs are met to the best of our abilities during the mandated school closure for COVID-19 concerns, UPSD Food Services offered grab-and-go meals for students in need of food during the final months of the 2019-20 academic year.
Now that the school year has come to a close, UPSd families and students in need of food may take advantage of The Open Link's services, including their Summer Meals Program. More information on The Open Link is available below.
The Open Link is offering a Grab and Go meals program in place of Summer Lunch Bunch this year! The program runs June 22-August 14 at five locations: Mondays and Thursdays at Treichler’s Mill Park in Hereford from 11:30am-noon, Bieler Park in East Greenville from 12:15-12:45pm; and Tuesdays and Fridays at Pennsburg Commons in Pennsburg from 11:30am-noon, Hope Valley Community Church in Red Hill from 12:15-12:45pm and Isaac Smith Park in Green Lane from 1-1:30pm. Open to all kids 18 and under, and FREE. Each child will receive two breakfast and two lunch meals. The Open Link staff and volunteers look forward to seeing you!

Ways to Help UPSD During the School Closure - Your Support is Appreciated!
Over the course of this school closure, we’ve received a number of inquiries from community members and businesses asking how they may lend support to our students, especially in regard to our Grab and Go Meal Program. First and foremost, thank you to everyone who has reached out in that regard. Your generosity and genuine concern for Upper Perk students’ well being is heartwarming!
At this time, the district, like many other community organizations, is not able to accept donations of food or other products. This is to ensure the safety of our staff and our students/families. Volunteer opportunities are also very limited in an effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
If you would like to help UPSD in a tangible way during this time, providing financial support is the best method to help ensure that we are able to continue to provide meals to our students in need of food.
If you would like to support the Grab and Go Meal Program, which is available to all students K-12, please make your check payable to the UPSD Cafeteria Account and mail it to the Upper Perkiomen Education Center 2229 East Buck Road Suite 2 Pennsburg, PA 18073. Thank you for your support!
Additionally, we’d like to remind you that community organizations and resources, such as The Open Link, are being heavily relied upon during this unprecedented situation. For those who wish to help the students and families of the Upper Perkiomen Valley, providing support to community organizations is crucial during times like these to help ensure that supplies are available to those who need it most.
