The FPS Outback food pantry is open DAILY this week from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to provide groceries to families. We normally provide non-perishable food items and frozen meat, but due to recent donations, we are now able to add fresh fruit, lettuce, bread, and eggs to the food boxes. Since next week is Spring Break, we will be giving double boxes on Friday, March 20. The Outback is accessible to families by two different public transit bus routes and is located at 2350 Old Farmington Rd. in Fayetteville on the ALLPS campus.
Fayetteville Public Schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, and will move to Alternative Methods of Instruction until further notice.
