IDEA Public Schools offering free bundled meals to all children during Spring Break

IDEA Public Schools’ Child Nutrition Program (CNP) announced Wednesday that they will be serving bundled meals during spring break to any child in the community ages 2 to 18.

School officials say the bundled meals will include breakfast, lunch, and supper and will total 21 meals. Meal pick-up will be on Friday, March 12 from 7 – 11 a.m. at all IDEA El Paso campuses.

To sign up any child in the household that would like to participate, parents can fill out the on line form.

All meals are provided via curbside pick-up only on a first come, first serve basis. Children do not need to attend IDEA Public Schools. Signing up is not required to receive a meal bundle. All children in the community that are 18 years old and under are eligible for meal service at any school location.

Officials add that, due to new regulations by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), if a child is not present in the car, parents must be able to show proof of child identity in order to receive meals.

Forms of identification include:

  • Official letter/email from school listing children enrolled
  • Individual student report cards
  • Attendance record from parent portal of school website
  • Birth certificate for children
  • Student ID cards

Families seeking more information on campus locations, can visit the IDEA public school site.
