The food bags will be distributed regionally to the families that have expressed their desire to get a food bag. Day care centres will let the families know where and when they can pick up their bags.

Jyväskylä will start distributing food bags to children in pre-primary education in week 17. If the closures continue after 13 May, a second delivery will be arranged in week 21. Day care centres have asked families about their need for food. The bags will be distributed regionally, from the day care centres that are open.

The food bags will contain foodstuff, not ready meals. Also, there will be no meat and no fish. Those following a gluten-free diet will receive their food bags gluten-free. Families will be asked beforehand if they follow a gluten-free diet.
