Student meals available through curbside pick-up program while CISD is closed

March 21, 2020

Thanks to the dedication of CISD’s Student Nutrition group, families can rest assured their students will be fed throughout the district’s COVID-19 closure. The district will start a curbside meal pick-up program March 23 to serve its students breakfast and lunch.

“Many of our children rely on school meals and with our district now closed, that intensifies the challenges our families are facing,” said Dr. Wendy Eldredge, superintendent of Crandall ISD. “The educational demands being placed on our families are far-reaching and beyond what any of us have ever experienced. We are doing everything we can to lessen their hardships and if that includes feeding students, we will do that, too.”

Breakfast and lunch will be served together in pre-packaged sacks. One meal is available each day to all currently enrolled CISD students. Children must be present to receive meals.

Serving times are 10 a.m.-noon, Monday-Friday, at the following locations:

  • Dietz ES
  • Martin ES
  • Walker ES
  • Raynes Bldg./Compass Academy
  • Central Baptist Church
  • Talty Baptist Church
  • Warsaw Community Center
Families should remain in their vehicles and drive through the location.

Eldredge said the district will continue working with state and federal agencies to serve children in need during the school closure. For now, classes are scheduled to resume Monday, April 6.
