Student curbside meal service begins Monday, March 23

Gainesville ISD will provide free curbside grab-and-go meals for children during the district closure beginning Monday, March 23rd. All children 18 years and younger will have the option to receive 3 meals daily (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) per visit.  Please note that on Friday, each child may receive 9 meals to include weekend meals.  The child must be present, but a student ID is not required and the child does not have to be a student at that campus to receive a free meal. 

Meals will be provided Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Edison Elementary (1 Edison Dr.) and Gainesville Junior High School (1201 Lindsay St.).

For pickup at Edison Elementary, please enter the north parking lot (California St.) and proceed through to the designated curbside location.   For pick up at Gainesville Junior High, please enter the student drop off parking lot (Hird St.) and proceed through the bus lane going east towards Lindsay St. The curbside pickup location will be behind the cafeteria. 


For menus and drive thru maps of each location, please visit the GISD Child Nutrition page at  As a reminder, meals will be served in a drive-thru fashion, so please stay in your vehicles.  In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, families will not be allowed to congregate or come inside the buildings.
