GISD Nutrition Services will distribute healthy meals at all campuses between Aug. 20-Sept. 9. Both meals will be served from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. each weekday through a drive-thru service, according to a news release.
“We are excited to offer this service to families who would like to take advantage of it during the upcoming period of remote learning,” the release said.
Parents are invited to pick up meals for any student who lives in their household.
In accordance with the Texas Department of Agriculture, GISD must comply with normal school nutrition program guidelines, which require every meal to be attributed to a GISD student, the release said. This means that meals may not be picked up for neighbors or other students not connected to their household. Parents will also need to provide a form of identification showing affiliation to their student and will also be asked for the names and campuses of their student, it said.
Standard meal prices apply, but applications for free and reduced priced meals are being accepted for families who meet the eligibility requirements.
The first day of remote classes is Aug. 20. The first day of optional in-person classes is Sept. 10.
