Escambia County Schools 

ECSD Adding Schools to List of Sites Offering School Meals
Starting March 30, 2020, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Beginning Monday, March 30, Escambia County School District’s Food Service Department is planning to add schools to the list of sites where families can pick up breakfast and lunch, for free. All sites will give children or teens a breakfast meal and a lunch meal, during the same visit. The meals are designed to be carried away and consumed off campus (cafeteria/dining rooms will not be open). Meals will be distributed in a curbside pick-up operation. Food items will be in to-go containers and will consist of ready-to-eat food items that should be consumed when received or should be quickly refrigerated for consumption at a later time.
According to the USDA’s policy, the child or children must be present to receive meals. They must be 18 and younger; and children do not have to be a student at that school in order to pick up meals there.
Supplemental school meals will be available at the following sites beginning March 30, Monday through Friday. Because Friday, April 10, is a non-student day, families will need to make other arrangements for that day.
ECSD’s distribution sites, beginning March 30, 2020, will include:
