For the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, all children up to age 18 and adults with special needs up to age 21 will be able to receive one free breakfast and lunch meal every school day.

The free meals are being made possible due to waivers placed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that extended 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
