Due to the USDA extending its National School Lunch waivers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tustin Unified School District will continue providing Grab-and-Go breakfast and lunch meals to children throughout the summer – June 1 through Aug. 7.
Tustin Unified will provide Grab-and-Go meals two days per week – Monday and Wednesday – from 9 to 11 a.m. at Robert Heideman Elementary School, 15571 Williams St.; Columbus Tustin Middle School, 17952 Beneta Way; A.G. Currie Middle School, 1401 Sycamore Ave.; and Tustin High School, 1171 El Camino Real.
On Mondays, students receive four meals (two breakfasts and two lunches) – two for the current day and two for the next day.
On Wednesdays, students receive six meals (three breakfasts and three lunches) – two for the current day and four for the next two days.
The meals are provided at no cost to all children 18 years and younger (it is not necessary for them to be in the free and reduced lunch program). Service is set up as a drive-thru style for pickup; however, walk-ups are accepted.
“The District’s Nutrition Services staff is doing a great job providing more than 3,200 meals each day to children in our community,” TUSD Nutrition Services Director Teresa Squibb said. “Since the program began on March 23, Tustin Unified has provided over 250,000 meals.”
