Reiche Families ~ Important Update:

Starting September 14, 2020, Reiche is no longer a family meal distribution center. 

The NEW meal distribution sites are Portland, Casco Bay & Deering Highschools and Talbot Community School (pick-up time: 1:00-2:00 PM).
All other meal pick-up locations posted on the Portland Schools "Food Resources in the Community" webpage are no longer in service. 

We encourage all Reiche families to visit the new PPS "FAQ" page for answers to the most common questions families have asked about the 2020-2021 school reopening and to visit
 the PPS Covid-19 Webpage for a wide range of PPS family support resources.
