What if I can't bring my child?

If it's not possible to bring your child at the meal pickup time, we ask that you present one of the following forms of ID for the child:

  • A student report card  for each child not present (does not have to be a GISD report card)
  • A student ID card (does not have to be an ID from GISD)
  • A birth certificate*

Please display the identification document on the passenger side window or on the dashboard so that our staff can easily see it. Parents can pick up meals for their children only

*Children under the age of 5 who are not enrolled in a school district may use a birth certificate to request a meal.
