Katy ISD Provides Thousands of Free Meals to Katy Children

Next Week, the District will add two new locations and hot food entrée option.

KATY [March 22, 2020] – Over the past week, Katy Independent School District has had the privilege to serve 33,102 meals, both breakfast and lunch, to Katy area families during this difficult time of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. For this upcoming week, Katy ISD will move one meal distribution site and adding an additional school to expand our assistance to the community.  The District will also provide a hot entrée in the lunch meal, beginning Tuesday, March 24. (The hot entrée is to expand the options, and the meal will remain grab and go style.)

“During this closure we want students to continue receiving their meals as well as the nutrients they need to stay healthy,” said Katy ISD Executive Director of Nutrition and Food Services, Donna Pittenger.  “Children do not need to be enrolled in a Katy ISD school to receive the meals.  We simply ask parents and children to come to one of our grab and go locations.  Individuals will not be asked for proof of residency nor identification,” added Pittenger.

As a reminder, grab and go breakfast and lunches are available to all Katy area children, up to 18 years of age, free of charge.  The meals are served at the campuses listed below from 9 a.m.  to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. All meals are provided curbside outside the campuses’ covered walkway area, where buses pickup and drop off students.  Families will not be able to enter the campus during the meal service.
