DCSS to Partner with U.S.D.A. and Baylor University for Free Student Meals in June
June 1, 2020, - Demopolis City School System still wants to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time while school is closed, so we’re announcing a new program that will deliver meals at your doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University. Your student(s) enrolled in the Demopolis City School System are eligible to participate in the program.
When you sign up to get a Meals-to-You, every other week you’ll get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child 1-18 in your household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches/suppers—enough food for each kid for two weeks!
All foods are shelf stable, which means you don’t have to worry about them expiring anytime soon. With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to your door, so you don’t have to worry about:
- Extra trips to the grocery store
- Extra money spent on food
- Extra time planning meals your kids will like
If you aren’t home when the box is delivered, no worries. The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, you don’t have to worry about refrigerating the foods immediately. If you will be unable to pick up your box(es) on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family get it. And no need to worry; receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.
HOW DO YOU SIGN UP? All you have to do is fill out an online sign-up form and submit it as soon as possible! Access the online form by clicking this link: https://mealstoyou.org/emergency-meals-to-you-application/. Boxes will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so sign up online today! Let Meals-to-You take away the stress of buying extra groceries during this time. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Aretha Littles at 334-289-1721.
