All Local Children, Through Age 18, Now Eligible for Free Meals
San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) wants to make sure that every child has an opportunity to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner every school day. To make it easier for families to take advantage of the free Grab and Go Meals offered to every local child, regardless of income or age, the District is adding nine additional distribution sites as of Tuesday, September 8.
“In an effort to make it easier for all families, especially those without reliable transportation, to take advantage of the free student meal program, we have added more distribution sites,” said Nutrition Services Director Adriane Robles. “We want families to know we are here to support them during these difficult times by making it easier to feed their children.”
Breakfast and lunch to-go meals, as well as snacks, are available for pick up Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 to 11 a.m. Distribution ends at 11 a.m. to protect families from heat-related health issues and to prevent food from spoiling in high temperatures. Families are encouraged to refrigerate meals to maintain food safely.
Due to the September 7 Labor Day holiday, meals will be distributed on Tuesday, September 8 instead of on the Monday holiday. Families can get breakfast, lunch, a snack, and dinner on Tuesday and three days of meals, including snacks, on Wednesday, September 9. Grab and Go Meal distribution will return to the usual Monday and Wednesday schedule on September 14.
Families are no longer required to provide the name and school of each child to pick up meals. Every child, up to age 18, is eligible to receive five days worth of free meals each week.
