Beginning March 30, Pflugerville ISD will expand its curbside free meal pickup program and serve dinner for district families.

The dinner option will be available for pickup alongside the district’s breakfast and lunch offerings, which are served from 8-9 a.m. and 11 a.m.-1 p.m., respectively, Monday through Friday.



These free meals will be available to all students 18 years of age or younger regardless of PfISD residency or enrollment, according to the school district.

“Pflugerville ISD has tried to maintain all responsibilities and services as constant as possible during these challenging and ever-changing times. This additional offering was made available after state and federal agencies allowed waivers to allow districts to best serve their communities,” Pflugerville ISD Food Service Director Geoff Holle said in an email to Community Impact Newspaper.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on March 25 lifted a requirement that mandated parents be present to pick up free curbside meals for children.
