Lamar CISD to Provide Free Meals for Students Through December

Sep 17, 2020 | Community Relations

Through an extended waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Lamar CISD will provide free meals to all students from Sept. 21 through Dec. 31, 2020.

On-Campus Students

Lamar CISD students attending on-campus instruction will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost beginning Sept. 21, 2020. Free meals for all students will continue through Dec. 31, or pending available funds through USDA.

Once this waiver expires, the District will switch back to the School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Free and reduced meal applications must still be submitted for the 2020-2021 school year to determine benefits after the waiver ends. Visit www.schoolcafe.com to apply online.

Virtual Students

Free curbside meals are available to students participating in virtual learning, as well as children 18 and under who are not enrolled in Lamar CISD. Child Nutrition will be providing contactless curbside pickup on Mondays only.

Meals will be placed inside of vehicle trunks, truck beds and/or backseats. Families will receive a multi-day meal kit consisting of five breakfasts and five lunches. Families are required to complete an online form every Wednesday by 8 p.m. prior to meal pickup. Meals will not be provided if the form is not submitted.

Parents must provide documentation if you haven’t previously received a car placard. The following are acceptable forms of ID:

  • Current student ID issued by the District;
  • A schedule, or any correspondence from the school with the student ID number on it.
  • If the child is not enrolled in Lamar CISD and is not present during meal pick up, the parent must present a birth certificate for each child they’re picking up for. 

Parents may add funds to their student’s meal account for a la carte purchases and in preparation for when the USDA waiver ends. Parents can use the online payment method through www.schoolcafe.com.

For additional guidance, or to add your email to the weekly order form, please contact the Child Nutrition Office at 832-223-0180 or visit the Child Nutrition Facebook page.
