Students in two area school districts will now be able to get a free meal.
The Amarillo Independent School District will begin serving free breakfast and lunch meals at all campuses and to those taking online learning classes.
There will also be 10 schools in the district that are providing free meals to any child in the community under 18, even if they are not a student with AISD.
However, if the child is not from AISD, the child must be present when parents pick up a meal.
Those taking the online classes can pick up meals Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Community members can pick up breakfast and lunch from Austin Middle School, Caprock High School, Eastridge, Emerson, Humphrey’s Highland, Ridgecrest, Rogers, San Jacinto, South Lawn, and Wills Elementary, according to AISD.
The River Road Independent School District announced they will be able to provide the free meals with help from the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Officials say students and children not attending school or not currently on campus, can fill out a form on their website for parents to request meals.
Meal Pick-Up will be at two campuses, Rolling Hills Elementary and Willow Vista Early Childhood Academy.
The form can be accessed here.
For first time pick up, they will need to see one of these documents for each child requesting a meal:
1. Official letter/email/electronic school application from school listing children enrolled.
2. Individual Report Card.
3. Attendance record from parent portal of the school website, printed or electronic, that includes child’s names.
4. Birth certificates for children not in school.
5. Student ID.
