20-21 School Lunch & Breakfast Program
In light of increased safety and social distancing standards, Student Nutrition will offer curbside meal service providing meal bundles two times per week for Allen ISD students (K-12) at five school locations. Meals (2 Breakfasts and 2 Lunches) will be offered on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 and on Friday, August 14, 2020 for the first week of At Home Learning at the Tuesday Meal Bundle Prices below. Curbside meals will be offered on Tuesdays (2 Breakfasts and 2 Lunches) and Thursdays (3 Breakfasts and 3 Lunches) after the first week. Meals must be purchased as a complete bundle, and cannot be purchased separately.
All meal bundles will be priced according to the student’s eligibility. Parents and/or students may pick up the meal bundles by scanning their student’s ID Card or providing their student’s ID number. ID Cards will be distributed at your child’s school. To help ensure a smooth purchasing process, please ensure that there is adequate funding to your child’s PayPams account or purchase meal bundles using cash or check by placing in an envelope with your child’s name and ID and depositing at the curbside meal station at one of the five locations. Students are encouraged to pick up meal bundles at the closest location to their regularly assigned school; however, any Allen ISD student can receive meals at any of the five locations from 11:00-1:00 (1 bundle per student per day).
The five Allen ISD school locations for curbside meal pick up are:
1. Boyd Elementary, 800 Jupiter Rd, Allen, TX 75002
