BOISE, Idaho — For children who need nutritious meals while schools are closed, Boise School District will expand Grab-And-Go meal services with suppers and healthy snacks starting April 27.

Beginning Tuesday, April 21, fresh fruits and vegetable snacks will also be provided. Snacks are only available for children who are present and will be available 3-5 times a week.

Monday through Friday, free sack meals will be available from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m at the following locations:

  • Garfield Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Taft Elementary - in the front of the school
  • Grace Jordan Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Hawthorne Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Hillcrest Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Whitney Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Morley Nelson Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Whittier Elementary - breakfast, lunch and supper.
  • Koelsch Elementary - breakfast and lunch.

School buses will deliver meals to the following school areas between approximately 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Any child ages 1-18 (including toddlers) can receive one breakfast, one lunch and one supper per day to eat at home, in addition to the fresh fruit and vegetable snack. No identification or proof of school enrollment is required.

Meals are not to be eaten on site. There will be no public access inside the schools. Schools and bus stops are not places to socialize or congregate at this time. Meals will be served on a first come first served basis. Locations and times may change.

In an attempt to maintain at least 6 feet of distance when handing out meals we will ask families how many meals they need, put the packages on a table then step away while a family member picks up the meal.

If your child requires special meal accommodations, please contact the Boise School District Food & Nutrition Service Office at 208-854-4067 to make arrangements.
