“While we will continue to feed our kids, we will do it while reducing the number of interactions,” Superintendent Dr. Rick Westfall said in a tweet.
Each meal will include protein, grain, fruit, and vegetables along with the optional choice of milk. KISD is asking that parents remain in their cars as they drive through to pick up meals. They may pick up meals without their children present but should be prepared to show their child’s student ID badge or provide the ID number. All children in Keller ISD are eligible to receive meals as it is not restricted to those on the free or reduced lunch plans.
“I think it’s amazing that that was one of the first things KISD put in place,” senior Jaimie Schubert said in regards to the program. “It’s something that is so important to so many families and KISD is really blessing those families and students right now.”
Furthermore, the Community Storehouse is continuing to offer support to families within the Keller ISD community at this time. Remaining open at their normal hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, they are offering both emergency food boxes (with provided ID only) and monthly food support (additional documents needed).
