TEXAS – In efforts to help the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, IDEA Public Schools has been offering free curbside meals at all of their campuses throughout Texas and Louisiana.

A press release from IDEA Public Schools said, as of Friday April 24, IDEA schools have served one million meals since March 19 to children throughout communities in the following areas: Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Tarrant County, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

All IDEA schools in Texas will offer breakfast, lunch and supper available for curbside pick-up from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Monday – Friday. Weekend bundled meals are also available on Fridays.

All meals are provided via drive-thru only. All children in the community 18 years and under are eligible for meal service at any school location. 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, said the school’s release.
