Mission CISD to provide supplemental summer meals program in August

Mission, Texas- The Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) Child Nutrition Program (CNP) has been approved to provide a supplemental summer meals program in August. 

Meals for one week will be available for contactless pick up on Monday, August 17 and Monday, August 24, from 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. The distribution will only be done on these two dates. Mission CISD will be providing the meals, at no charge, to any children in the community 18 years and younger. Children do not need to be in the car but parents must present some form of proof of children 18 years or younger before meals can be picked up. 

“We are excited to be able to provide this additional meals service to help fill the gap between when the current meals program ends and the first day of school,” said Dr. Carol G. Perez, superintendent. “Mission CISD families were the first in the state to start receiving their meals directly to their homes through the Meals-To-You program provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Baylor University. This has helped most of our families not just during the summer, but it began shortly after the COVID-19 closures began impacting our ability to provide district meals.”

Dr. Perez said the Meals-To-You program runs through August 15 for those families who were able to be enrolled. 

The supplemental summer meals program distribution will be done at the following locations on August 17 and 24: Mission Collegiate High School, Mission High School, R. Cantu Jr. High School, Bryan Elementary School, Marcell Elementary School, Mims Elementary School, Cantu Elementary School, O’Grady Elementary School, Leal Elementary School. 

Meals for seven days (a breakfast and a lunch) will be provided for each child. The meals will be shelf stable, cold (refrigeration required), or frozen. All meals will include instructions on storage, preparation, and food safety. Hot meals will not be provided. 

As this will be a contactless pick up process, no one will be permitted to exit their vehicles to maintain safety measures.
