Garland ISD partners with DART, Good Samaritans of Garland to provide meals

Garland ISD has partnered with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and Good Samaritans of Garland to provide a week’s worth of meals for district families affected by COVID-19.

Every Tuesday, Garland ISD and DART staff members prepare bags full of groceries provided by Good Samaritans of Garland and load them onto DART buses. The packaged goods are then delivered to the following four schools for distribution. 

Austin Academy for Excellence

Handley Elementary School

Shorehaven Elementary School

Walnut Glen Academy for Excellence

This new initiative, along with GISD’s Student Nutrition Services' curbside meals program, demonstrates the district's ongoing efforts to provide resources to our tri-city families.

For questions, please call the Family Support Call Center at 903-224-5761. View the slideshow to see photos of a recent distribution.
