Star City School District still wants to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time while school is closed, so we’re announcing a new program that will deliver meals at your doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University. We will still provide our students meals on Tuesday and Friday.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Any student who is classified as free or reduced for the 2019-2020 school year is eligible. Once signed up, the district will verify eligibility and you will be sent notification before meals will be delivered to your address.
When you sign up to get a Meals-to-You, every other week you’ll get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child 1-18 in your household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches/suppers—enough food for each kid for two weeks!
All foods are shelf stable, which means you don’t have to worry about them expiring anytime soon. With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to your door, so you don’t have to worry about:
Extra trips to the grocery store
Extra money spent on food
Extra time planning meals your kids will like
If you aren’t home when the box is delivered, no worries.
The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, you don’t have to worry about refrigerating the foods immediately. If you will be unable to pick up your box(es) on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family get it. And no need to worry; receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.
