Updates to Free Meals Provided by SAISD for Students
March 20, 2020
San Angelo ISD is committed to helping our families during this unprecedented time while students are away from schools. Our Child Nutrition Department will continue to prepare and distribute free meals for children ages 18 years or younger at five sites in San Angelo. Beginning on Monday, March 23rd, we will have one pick up time that contains a lunch and a snack. This decision has been made to ease the burden on families by providing multiple meals during one pickup as well as minimizing the amount of public exposure and travel.
These “grab-and-go” curbside meals can be picked up each weekday between 11:00am and 12:30pm at the following locations:
Daily meal options include a to-go snack and a to-go lunch. Meals include a combination of protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and milk.
Please know that children must be present to receive a meal. Due to federal regulations, we are unable to provide meals for adults at this time. Meals may be picked up at any of the San Angelo ISD schools listed above. Your child does not need to attend one of the listed sites to receive the free meal. Each “grab-and-go” meal will come at no charge, regardless of meal eligibility status.
Parents may drive through the car loop (front of each campus listed) to pick up meals for their children and are advised to stay in their cars. Families that walk to the campus will also be served a “grab-and-go” meal. There will be no areas available to consume food onsite.
Meals/milk should be consumed immediately upon receiving or refrigerated. Any leftover food/milk should be refrigerated immediately and consumed within 2-3 days of pickup.
Team members distributing meals follow all required safe food handling guidelines.
