Sabine Parish School Board is ready for parents to register kids for free Meals to Go | Around The Town

Free meals

The Sabine Parish School system received approval for Emergency “Meals to You”, a
partnership between the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, and the Louisiana Department of Education as an option for
meal distribution during the extended COVID-19 school closures and the “stay home”
orders from Governor John Bel Edwards.

Parents and/or caretakers MUST opt-in to participate the FREE “Meal to You” service
by completing the online registration form. Registration is easy and can be completed
by using a smart phone or any other internet-enabled device.

Registration will open Wednesday, April 8, 2020. The DEADLINE to complete your
online registration is Friday night, April 10, 2020. Parents and/or caretakers will need to
use their 9-1-1 physical address (including apartment #, if applicable) for shipping of
meals. Parents who miss this window to apply will NOT be able to secure meals through
this program after the application deadline Friday night.

When completing the application make sure to select Sabine Parish as your child’s
school, so we can verify their enrollment in the district. Parents without Internet access
should contact the child’s teacher to register. To complete your online application
visit https://mealstoyou.org/emergency-meals-to-you-application/.

Once registered Baylor will send by mail 10 meals (5 breakfasts and 5 lunches) to
every child in the home under the age of 18 in Sabine Parish. The shelf-stable,
easy-to-prep kid friendly meals will be delivered by mail weekly. Meals should begin
shipping 2-3 days after the registration process is completed.

For further information about the “Meals to You” program please contact Dana Hippler,
Supervisor of Child Nutrition at hipplerd@spsb.la.
