Officials of Volusia County Schools have been permitted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, food and Wellness Division to continue the meal program that allows all children under 18 in schools and the community to eat free until school ends on June 4, 2021.
All students attending school on campus will continue to receive breakfast and lunch items at no charge, while children not attending in-person classes, families can register weekly for curbside meal services.
Curbside meals are picked up each Tuesday from 6:30 -7:00 a.m., with the last scheduled curbside meal service being June 1, 2021.
The curbside meal service provides five breakfast and five lunches weekly.
Registration is required and must be completed weekly between Tuesday and Thursday for the following Tuesday’s pickup. Parents can register at any participating school, regardless of the school a child attends.
Parents must show ID and a form of ID for each student requesting meals. Current student ID cards or birth certificates are accepted.
Starting on Dec. 1 and continuing through the end of the school year, the pickup sites for the weekly curbside meal service will be limited to these sites:
Citrus Grove Elementary
Coronado Beach Elementary
Cypress Creek Elementary
David C. Hinson Middle
