There are changes in the way food is being distributed to Hannibal students starting Thursday.

Citing the safety of their students and staff, Hannibal School District officials report they are changing their food distribution program delivery model, locations and times, beginning today.

Starting today, food will be distributed Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Oakwood, Stowell, Mark Twain, Veterans and Eugene Field Elementary schools, and at the Middle School.
