Student Meals During Closure: UPDATED

In an effort to support our community and families, Magnolia ISD will provide FREE meals to students. Families will be able to drive through for curbside pick up at three of our elementary school locations. Starting on Monday, April 27th, curbside meals will be distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays. Monday pickup will include breakfast and lunch for Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday pickup will include breakfast and lunch for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Please see below for details:


Locations: Magnolia Elementary School, Smith Elementary School, & Lyon Elementary

When: Monday and Wednesday each week

Time: 9 a.m. to noon.


1. Cars will pull up to the back of the school and form a car rider line. This line will form at the back of the school where the buses normally drop off students. Please remain in your car and an employee will deliver the food to your car.
2. All children 18 or under will eat free and children need to be present in the car.
3. Each child will receive one breakfast and one lunch in a to-go bag or box.


Texas parents can now visit the TXSchools.gov MealFinder Map to find locations near them where local school systems are offering free school meals—both breakfast and lunch—for pick-up while school buildings are closed because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).


There are four tools available to locate the meal site closest to you:

  1. Visit Magnoliaisd.org or find us on social media to check for important updates
  2. Text FOODTX or COMIDA to 877-877 to receive a text with the three closest meal sites to your location.
  3. Visit the interactive map at SchoolMealFinder.hoonuit.com to view meal sites in your area.
  4. Call 211


Check tools daily for updates as site locations and times may change.
