Children will now get take-home meals for Saturdays from EPISD

Moye Meal Distribution

(EL PASO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT -- April 29, 2020) — Children who receive meals from EPISD will begin getting food for Saturdays this week as part of new distribution rules adopted by the District during the pandemic-related campus closures.

EPISD’s Grab and Go Meal will provide students with breakfast and lunch to eat on Saturdays during Friday’s meal distributions beginning this week. 

EPISD currently offers three meal distributions: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday with each distribution providing two days of breakfast and lunches.

“With the current pandemic situation, there is much more food insecurity out there,” said Laura Duran, director of food services. “Most students depend on school meals and if we can help with an additional day of meals, we will.  It is one less thing parents need to worry about.”

Meals are free for children up to age 18 and available at 50 different sites throughout the district. Service is curbside and EPISD staff practice social distancing in accordance to the health guidelines outlined by the City of El Paso’s Public Health Department.
