Updated: 2:40 p.m., March 17

New Braunfels ISD school closures have been extended through April 3. Meals will continue to be provided as described below until further notice.

-----

In partnership with the Texas Department of Agriculture, the New Braunfels ISD Child Nutrition Department announced that it will be preparing and serving breakfast and lunch starting Tuesday, March 17, through Friday, March 20, at no cost to students that are under the age of 19.

The service is meant to provide meals to children that might not otherwise have them while school is canceled due to coronavirus precautions.


Students must be present to receive a meal and, due to federal guidelines, adults are not eligible to receive meals for themselves.



Meals will be available for curbside pick-up at the following locations and times:

  • Voss Farms Elementary School bus loop - 2510 Pahmeyer Road, New Braunfels

  • Veramendi Elementary School bus loop - 2290 Oak Run Parkway, New Braunfels

  • Breakfast and lunch meal pickup: 6:30-8:30 a.m.

  • Lunch only pickup: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.


The morning service will offer a hot breakfast to-go with the option of an additional cold lunch to-go. The afternoon service time will only serve hot lunches to-go.

Each meal is provided at no charge, regardless of the student’s meal eligibility status, and students can receive a meal at either campus.

Families must stay in their vehicle when picking up, but families that walk to the school will also be served. No one will be permitted to enter the building during pick-up times.

For questions regarding meal services, email cvanderbrook@nbisd.org or call 830-627-6743.
