Free Student Meals Extended

GISD Free Student Meals Extended Through 20-21 School Year

Gainesville ISD, in partnership with Chartwells K12, will continue offering free meals to all students for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Free school meals, including breakfast and lunch, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger. The program does not cover snacks and a la carte menu items.  As a reminder, if you believe you qualify for free/reduced meals and have not yet applied, please do so to ensure that you are eligible for the carryover period for the first 30 days of the 2021-2022 school year.  Click this link to complete the application.

For all other students who may be attending school virtually, attend homeschool, or are temporarily quarantined, we will continue offering contactless curbside pickup at Chalmers and Edison for 5-days of breakfasts and lunches.  Curbside pick-up is available on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays and includes two meals each day, providing enough fresh, nutritious, delicious meals for the entire school week. Pick up time at Chalmers is 1pm at the back side of the school.  Pick-up times for Edison are 8:45-9:15 a.m. and 12:30 –1:00 p.m. at the front (north east side). Meals will not be served December 21-January 4.
