Clarendon School District 2 Department of Food Services is pleased to announce a new program that will deliver meals directly to the homes of students: Emergency Meals-to-You. The initiative, which is a partnership between CSD2, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University, provides these meals at no cost to the families.
Families with students enrolled at the following schools are eligible to participate in the program:
• Manning Early Childhood Center
• Manning Primary School
• Manning Elementary School
• Manning Junior High
• Manning High School
As long as at least one child in the household attends one of the five schools listed, every child in that household is eligible to receive these meals. If a family registers for the Emergency Meals-to-You program, this benefit will not affect any other existing benefit the family is receiving.
Boxes will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so sign up online today! Let Meals-to-You take away the stress of buying extra groceries during this time.
The enrollment period will start this Monday and will last until Tuesday, May 26, 2020.
Once a family signs up, an Emergency Meals-to-You box will be shipped directly to their door every other week for every child (ages 1-18) in their household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches, the equivalent of what they would receive at school for two weeks.
All of the items in the Emergency Meals-to-You box are shelf-stable, which means they will not expire anytime soon and do not have to be immediately refrigerated.
The partnership is set to last through June 30, 2020.
