Niles Community Schools to provide meal assistance over holiday break

NILES — Staff at Niles schools are working to ensure students do not go hungry during the holiday break.

Meal distribution will continue over the holidays with Niles Community Schools’ Holiday Break Meal Program and two upcoming pickup days: Tuesday, Dec. 22 and Tuesday, Dec. 29.
