The St. Mary Parish School Board announced their participation in a new program on Friday that will deliver meals to students' doorsteps for free.
Meals-To-You is a partnership between the school board, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.
The program will provide meals every other week for each child ages 1-18 in the home; each box will include 10 breakfast meals and 10 lunch meals. All food items are shelf-stable and packaged securely.
Parents/guardians who wish to participate in the program must complete an online application form and submit it by Tuesday, March 31. The form can be accessed HERE.
For a family to participate, at least one child in the household must:
Attend a CEP School (Aucoin Elementary, B. Edward Boudreaux Middle, Bayou Vista Elementary, Berwick Elementary, Centerville High, Foster Elementary, Franklin Senior High, Franklin Junior High, Hattie Watts Elementary, LaGrange Elementary, Maitland Elementary, Morgan City High, Morgan City Junior High, Norman Elementary, Patterson High, Patterson Junior High, Raintree Elementary, West St. Mary High, Wyandotte Elementary)
Be designated as free or reduced-price meals eligible at non-CEP schools (Berwick High, Berwick Junior High)
Meal boxes will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so parents/guardians should sign up online as quickly as possible.
