TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson's largest school district is offering a new way for parents to help feed their kids.

The Tucson Unified School District has been handing out school meals to all children ages 18 and under since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a way for students who aren't on school campuses to receive the nutrition usually offered there during the day.

Now, TUSD is making the process even easier. Instead parents picking up meals each day, they can sign up to receive a week's worth of breakfast, lunch and snacks at the TUSD Food Services Department Central Facility, at 2150 East 15th St.

TUSD says the new program is a pilot program, and participation will be expanded if this week is successful.

To sign up for the pickup, TUSD says parents should call 520-225-4700 or email FederalMeals@tusd1.org with your name and number of children.
