The deadline for Meals to You has passed. School district applications were due no later than 12 noon CST on Tuesday, 5/26.
In partnership with USDA and TDA, the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty (BCHP) has implemented the Emergency Meals-to-You program to provide shelf-stable, easily prepared, kid-friendly meals to students during unexpected school closures lasting four weeks or longer. Meals may be delivered through August 15, 2020.
At no cost to the school district, BCHP provides administrative support and technical assistance, and connect school districts with vendors who have the capacity to purchase, package, and deliver a box of meals containing 10 or more meals that meet nutrition requirements. This program is primarily directed towards rural families, for whom traditional SFSP service options are a challenge due to distance and transportation, but can be adapted for other challenges, like quarantines or natural disasters.
This delivery method will be implemented on a first come first serve basis. Districts that wish to participate should meet the following criteria:
- Be a school food authority in good standing with the Texas Department of Agriculture
- Have school campuses located in a rural county within Texas. Rural designations can be found through:
- Have announced a school closure lasting four weeks or longer
- Have participating school campuses with 50% or greater free or reduced-price eligibility
