CFISD nutrition services has been serving curbside meals to children 18 years or younger since March 16 and has now served 1 million meals. Curbside meals will continue Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. until the end of summer.
June 30, 2020—The CFISD nutrition services department celebrated serving its millionth curbside meal on June 30, more than three months after launching the free community service on March 16 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Curbside meals have been available to children 18 years and younger at 19 CFISD school locations. Each child is provided with breakfast and lunch. Children do not have to be present in the car, but adults must have some form of documentation for each child, including the student’s school ID, birth certificate, report card or attendance record. Curbside meals will continue Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. until the end of summer.
Cypress Springs High School nutrition services employee Betty Ortiz helps prepare curbside meals on March 26. The nutrition services team has now served 1 million meals, and each meal includes breakfast and lunch.
“I am very proud of the job that our nutrition services staff has done and continues to do during these uncertain times,” said Darin Crawford, director of nutrition services. “While 1 million meals is a big number, our team is focused on how many meals we will serve each day. We look forward to being able to continue our community curbside service until our students return to school.”
