GISD offering student food program during school closure
Graham ISD, in order to help feed students during the school closure, announced a free curbside meal program Friday.
“I am pleased to announce that Graham ISD’s Free Curbside Meal Program for children age 2-18 will begin on Monday, March 23rd,” said GISD Superintendent Sonny Cruse in a release.
Both breakfast and lunch will be served at Pioneer, Crestview and Woodland Elementary campuses. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to Noon.
Parents are advised to bring children being served to the meal pick up. Texas Department of Agriculture rules dictate that service is only allowed for children who are present. Currently, curbside pick-up is the only available option. Cruise, in a special-called school board meeting, stated the district is working on ways to deliver meals to the homes of children who are unable to get to the elementary campuses.
“The reason we couldn’t do that immediately is, when you put in your initial plan through the TDA, you have to tell them how you’re going to do it,” Cruse said. “Our initial plan was to do it at our three campuses; Crestview, Pioneer and Woodland. So we would have to add delivery to it, and there are some other provisions we will have to make to ensure we can do it. We are working toward that.”
