Meals will be available for pickup between 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at each location. Families can go to school/site nearest them to pick up food even if they do not attend that school. Families will drive up in the bus loops, and they will be handed meals through the vehicle window. Meals can be provided to children not of school age if they are in the group picking up the food.
Currently, the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services will NOT require students to be present to receive the meals, but parents/guardians should be prepared to provide one of the following documents to receive a meal for each of their child(ren) who are not present: school identification card, child’s passport, government-issued child identification card, or any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record. Meals will not be provided without documentation for the child(ren), and meals can still be received when the child is present with an adult.
Lynx is offering complimentary transportation to parents and students who ride on their current routes to get to the nearest stop to the feeding sites. Parents must be accompanied by their child to receive the free fare. Parents should inform the driver that they are going to the school for breakfast and/or lunch, and they will not be charged bus fare.
