Jefferson County Schools is partnering with the USDA and Baylor University to deliver food straight to qualifying students’ homes.
The Emergency Meals-to-You program (eMTY) mails 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches to a student’s home every two weeks. In order to receive food, students must attend a school that qualifies based on the program’s guidelines. Students must already be enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. Siblings (ages 1-18) of qualifying students, will also be eligible to receive the meals.
“Our district continues to explore ways to make sure students are fed during this difficult time. I commend our child nutrition program for making this happen. Emergency Meals-to-You is another way to make sure students don’t go without,” said Superintendent Dr. Walter Gonsoulin.
Emergency Meals-to-You DOES NOT replace the eight JEFCOED food distribution sites. Kikstart will continue to distribute meals at those sites Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A complete list of the Kikstart sites is available on the JEFCOED website. Kikstart meals are available to anyone 18 and younger.
