MISSION, Texas – The Mission Consolidated Independent School District, in a press release, say they are one of the first district to receive meals from the national Meals-To-You program. The meals have started arriving at the homes of many families in the Mission CISD.
The district was not only the first school district in the state to gain approval by the national program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Baylor University, but district families are also the first in the state to start receiving their meals for students.
Through the Meals-To-You program, the enrolled families are now receiving shipments every two weeks for the duration of the COVID-19 school closure. Each shipment contains 10 meals a week (5 breakfasts, 5 lunches) for each qualifying child in the household.
The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, parents don’t have to worry about refrigerating the foods immediately. Meals-to-You also indicates that receiving the benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits a family may receive, said the release.
