TUCSON, Ariz. — The Tucson Unified School District is offering free summer meals starting Tuesday, May 26th.

TUSD says all children 18-years-old and under can take part in the free Grab & Go meals program.

There will be new bus routes starting, all organized by region. Children do not have to be present to receive meals. However, the program's website says parents or guardians will need to provide one of the following listed below. The documents will not be collected but do need to be shown.

  1. A student ID card, report card, or other school issued documentation with a child's name such as enrollment, class schedule, IEP etc.
  2. Show a video call home to show their children at home
  3. For children not enrolled in school: documentation with a child's name and date of birth such as a medical document
  4. If none of the above is able to be provided, staff will ask for the parent/guardian's name, child's name and school (or date of birth if not enrolled in school) which will be logged by staff.

Summer meal bus routes will run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., providing free breakfast and lunch. The lunch option will be given out cold to be heated at home, according to TUSD.

For more information, you can email federalmeals@tusd1.org or call (520) 225-4700.
