Officials with Keller ISD and Northwest ISD have announced that district drive-thru meal programs will continue throughout the month of June.

NISD will offer meal pickup at two district campuses from June 1-30. Meals are available to children age 18 and younger and can be picked up “using a grab-and-go format” every Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., officials said.

Every Thursday, an additional Friday meal will be provided, officials said. Meals can be picked up a Love Elementary School, located at 16301 Elementary Drive, Justin, or Prairie View Elementary School at 609 FM 3433, Rhome.

“Families who participated in Northwest ISD’s school closure meal program during remote learning are asked to reuse their vehicle tag for quick deliveries during the summer meal program,” officials said.

Keller ISD’s drive-thru meal service will also continue through the month of June, according to a district announcement.


District food provider Sodexo will distribute meals every Monday and Wednesday from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m., the announcement said. Meal distribution will be available at six KISD campuses, including:

  • Basswood Elementary School, 3100 Clay Mountail Trail, Fort Worth;

  • Caprock Elementary School, 12301 Grey Twig Drive, Fort Worth;

  • Friendship Elementary School, 5400 Shiver Road, Fort Worth;

  • Heritage Elementary School, 4001 Thompson Road, Fort Worth;

  • Keller-Harvel Elementary School, 635 Norma Lane, Keller; and

  • Whitley Road Elementary School, 7600 Whitley Road, Watauga.


“Meals for Monday and Tuesday will be distributed Monday, while meals for Wednesday through Friday will be picked up on Wednesday,” officials said.

District officials are asking parents to remain in their car as they drive through to pick up meals. Meals are available to any KISD student and not restricted to those on free or reduced-price lunch plans, officials said.

“Parents may pick up the meals without children present but must be prepared to show their student’s ID badge or provide their child’s Student ID Number,” the announcement said.

Keller ISD officials have provided additional resources for families to find drive-thru meal distribution sites unrelated to the district. More information is available here.
