AISD furnishing free meals for spring break

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 by Tai Moses

AISD wants families that rely on school meals to know that the district will continue to provide access to healthy food while campuses are closed next week for spring break. The district will be providing free seven-day meal packs before the break, available at the curbside pickup sites this Thursday, March 11. According to the announcement, “Seven-day meal packs are free for any child younger than 19 as well as those older than 19 who utilize special education resources or who are enrolled in school to complete the requirements for a high school diploma.” The healthy meals feature “protein, grains, fruits, vegetables and milk.” All food is served chilled and is intended to be reheated at home. Additional seven-day meal packs will be available at the Central Texas Food Bank’s mass distribution event at Toney Burger Stadium, 3200 Jones Road, on Tuesday, March 16, 9 a.m. to noon. An “assortment of supplementary food” will also be provided at that time. The regular curbside meal distribution will resume on Thursday, March 25.
