Curbside meals

Pre-order meals

Order by Aug. 7 for meal coverage for Aug. 21-27 and Aug. 28-Sept. 3. Important: If you complete the pre-order meal form for curbside service, you will still need to complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application for the 2020-2021 school year to determine eligibility status. 

Free and reduced-priced meal application

Don't forget to complete the 2020-21 Free and Reduced-Priced Meal Application. An new application is required every year to apply for and/or maintain current meal benefits. Parents should complete only one application for their family/household and list all students attending Garland ISD schools on the application.

Student Nutrition Services is excited to provide weekly curbside meal pick-up for remote learners.  To receive meals parents/guardians will need to complete an order form every two weeks for each Garland ISD student who would like meal service.  Parents/guardians can order breakfast, lunch or both meals for a two-week period.

How to order
