Of course we’ve had to cancel our traditional neighborhood Egg Hunt.
But we will not be defeated by Coronavirus!
The Strawberry Farms Community Association is teaming up with our school district lunch and bus partners to make sure our kids still get candy this week.
In the spirit of an Egg Hunt, please go to your school lunch pickup stop the rest of this week and check for candy … one day (probably Friday) we will be including egg hunt treats with your school lunches! (All candy will be individually sealed and wrapped and distributed by helpers using wearing protective gear and using social distancing.)
As a reminder, here’s the information we published previously:
Westerville City Schools is providing free breakfast/lunch packs to all children in Strawberry Farms Monday through Friday.
Each student must pick up his/her own lunch from the bus. (You can’t take an extra home for a sibling.)
Here are the meal location stops. Visit the one closest to you:
11:00 am —> 3761 ASHTON WOODS PL (in Ashton Woods Apartments)
11:15 am —> ELLERDALE DR & PENDLESTONE DR (west side, on the way to the park)
11:45 am —> KELLEN DR & STRAWBERRY GLADE DR (south end, off Buttonbush)

Rather than paying bus drivers and food services workers to sit idle, we are grateful the school district is putting them to work passing out free meals. Please take advantage of this great service! Those preparing and distributing meals are taking appropriate precautions and the food is pre-packaged and the packages are placed inside of a paper bag.
Please know that children are still allowed to pick up meals at their designated meal distribution locations. Some expressed concern that the state’s new “Stay at Home” order meant they could no longer go to these locations for their children to obtain food. This program falls under one of the identified reasons you are ALLOWED to leave your home. However, we encourage you to follow social distancing guidelines and stay at least six feet away from others who are there. As much as children may want to visit or hug their friends, please do not allow this to happen.
