Free weekend meals now offered to face-to-face learners

Free weekend meals are now offered to face-to-face learners. These free weekend meals can be picked up Thursdays from 5-6 p.m. at any of our 33 curbside meal pick-up schools. GISD families must provide verification whether their student is a remote or face-to-face learner. This designation can be found on the student's Skyward schedule or by verification email sent from the Student Nutrition Department. It is not necessary to pre-order weekend meals for face-to-face students.

Free meals for all students

As a result of The USDA extending COVID-19 flexibilities, we are now able to offer free meals to all students and to children 18 & under through our Curbside meals program.

Garland ISD students who are remote learners will be required to provide verification that they are registered as a remote learner. This can be verified by showing the email that was sent to all registered remote learners from the Student Nutrition Office or by showing their schedule in Skyward that shows they are registered as a remote learner.

Children 18 & under that are not Garland ISD students may also pick-up curbside meals.  They must bring a student ID card, report card, or birth certificate (for children younger than school age). 

Meal pick-ups will be every Monday and Thursday from 5-6 pm.

Meal pick-up process

Parents/guardians will need to show proof of GISD enrollment as a remote or face-to-face student at meal pickup. (Student ID, Report Card, Skyward Login, etc.)

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to qualify for Free or Reduced-price meal to be able to order Curbside Meals?

No.  You may submit a meal order regardless of your child(ren)’s meal eligibility. 

While meals are free for all students at this time, an application for Free & Reduced meals is still needed.  The recently added flexibility  and funding offered by the USDA to extend the free meal offer could end at any time. If this program ends, meals would be charged to your child(ren)’s lunch account according to their meal eligibility.

Meals for multiple students may be picked up from any school site but an important note is that a form MUST be completed for EACH student meal.
