Starting Oct. 1, students age 18 and younger and adults with special needs up to age 21 can receive a free breakfast and a free lunch through the Mansfield school district.

The free meals are being made possible due to waivers placed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that will extend the free summer meals program to ensure all children have access to nutritious food.

In-person learners at all Mansfield ISD campuses will access their meals as usual during their designated meal periods at no cost. Second meals, additional entrees, sides and snacks will be available for in-person learners to purchase.

Virtual learners and all other individuals will be able to receive the free meals curbside on every school day from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the following 13 sites:

Janet Brockett Elementary School

Imogene Gideon Elementary School

Glenn Harmon Elementary School

Carol Holt Elementary School

Thelma Jones Elementary School

D.P. Morris Elementary School

Erma Nash Elementary School

Annette Perry Elementary School

Alice Ponder Elementary School

Tarver Rendon Elementary School

Mary Jo Sheppard Elementary School

Elizabeth Smith Elementary School

Cora Spencer Elementary School

Families can visit any of the above participating sites. (Note: Elementary schools not listed will end their curbside meal service on Oct. 1.)

The free packaged meals will be distributed in a drive-thru fashion. No one will need to exit personal vehicles; and if the child is not present, a form of ID or proof of enrollment will need to be presented on site.

Walkers and bike riders are also welcome to grab a meal to go.

The free meals service will last through Thursday, Dec. 17.
