Austin ISD Food Services is preparing and providing meals for children under the age of 19 at more than 70 locations while school is closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Starting Monday, April 27, meals will be available at a curbside meal site located at Anderson High School. Curbside meal sites are open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday-Friday. Families are advised to stay in their cars and not enter buildings during meal pick up. Families or children who come by walking/biking/transit will still be able to receive food outside the campuses.
Each child may receive one breakfast and one lunch meal, Monday through Friday. Weekend meal packages are available each Friday, providing breakfast and lunch for Saturday and Sunday. Families are recommended to bring bags to help get their weekend meals home safely on Fridays.
Austin ISD is authorized to provide meals to parents or caregivers for their child — even when the child is not present — provided they have one of the following forms of documentation at the point of meal service.
- Official letter/email from school that shows children as enrolled
- Individual student report cards
- Attendance record from Parent Portal of school website
- Birth certificate for children not in school
- Student ID cards
To maintain a safe physical distance, at curbside sites, parents will tape the documentation to their car window or dash so staff may review through the glass. If the parent or caregiver does not have documentation, the child(ren) must be present to receive meals.
