Free Meals (Grab-n-Go)

During school closures, we offer free Grab-and-Go Mobilized Meals across TUSD via 12 bus routes making stops between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. Each bus route includes stops at school bus bays and existing bus stops where free Grab-and-Go meals will be provided. Each bus route will stop at the designated stops for 10 minutes to provide the Grab-and-Go meals. One breakfast and one lunch will be provided to each child. These meals are free to all children 18 and under. There are no eligibility requirements--ALL children 18 and under can receive these free meals.


If children are NOT present at pick-up, parents/guardians will be asked to provide one of the following for meal pick-up:

  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.

*Staff providing the meals will not be collecting any of these documents; they just need to be shown.
