The curbside grab n’ go meals program will now be expanded to include breakfast and lunch weekend meals, allowing students access to 14 meals each week.
Students or their parents/guardians can visit any of the 81 meal pick-up locations throughout the district from noon to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday to receive their breakfast and lunch. Beginning this week, an extra breakfast and lunch to save for the weekend is being provided on Thursdays and Fridays.
The meals were previously suspended by the USDA. At the urging of school district leaders, Congressmen Scott Peters and Juan Vargas and Congresswoman Susan Davis waivers have been restored to bring back weekend meals through Dec. 31, 2020, or as long as current funding allows.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Extra meal boxes and fresh produce provided by Feeding San Diego, San Diego Food Bank and the USDA are available at sites on a rotating basis. Fern Street Circus will be performing at select curbside grab n’ go meal locations for the next several weeks. Schedules for these as well as a full list of curbside grab n’ go meal locations can be found on www.sandiegounified.org.
