Beginning Monday, June 1, Comal and New Braunfels ISDs will start their curbside summer meal programs.

Both districts began offering curbside pickup options for breakfast and lunch March 17 after schools were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and both districts have continued the program through the remainder of the school year at 14 campuses.

All meals are free for students 18 or younger, regardless of their meal eligibility status.

If a child has a modified meal plan, parents can call the CISD Food Service Department at 830-221-2059 or the NBISD Child Nutrition Department at 830-627-6743.


Students and parents in CISD can pick up one meal pack per student Mon.-Thu. from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Specht Elementary School, Startzville Elementary School, Freiheit Elementary School, Morningside Elementary School or Goodwin Frazier Elementary School.

Each meal pack will include lunch and breakfast for the next day, and Thursday meal packs will include lunch for Thursday, breakfast and lunch for Friday and breakfast for Monday.

If a child cannot be present to receive their meal pack, a parent may bring the child’s birth certificate, school ID or report card to pick up their meals.

For NBISD parents retrieving meals, car tags issued during the spring semester will still be used to verify the identity of their child and to receive meals.

Students and parents in NBISD can pick up meals Mon.-Fri. from 7-8 a.m. for breakfast and 11 a.m.-noon for lunch at Voss Farms Elementary School or the Lone Star Early Childhood Center.

Families are required to stay in their vehicles when picking up meals, and no one is permitted to enter campus buildings at any time.
