Children no longer need to be present to receive meals. Parents or guardians should bring identification for each child for whom they are requesting meals. Acceptable identification includes student ID, student passport, student library card, student birth certificate or a photo of the adult with the students for whom they are picking up meals.

To limit person-to-person contact, remember to adhere to social distancing. Those driving to one of the feeding sites are asked to open the trunk of their car or leave a seat open where staff can place the food. People walking up to a site should remember to maintain a distance of at least six feet. These measures are taken very seriously and are intended to keep everyone safe.

The meals provided may contain allergens. Adults picking up the food are asked to be vigilant and ensure they do not take food if allergies may be a concern.
