Jefferson ISD will be providing both Breakfast and Lunch five days a week for JISD students and any children in the household ages 0-18 beginning Monday, March 23.
The buses will deliver food to students at their regular pick up locations (if they typically ride the bus to school) approximately 2 hours after the normal school bus runs. The buses will run five days a week with breakfast and lunch delivered each morning.
In addition, we will have “Grab and Go” for students who do not ride the bus.
Parents can pick up breakfast and lunch between the 8:15am and 9:30am at Jefferson Elementary School and Jefferson High School each day.
JES pickup location: Harrison Street. There will be a van in front of the school near the flag pole.
JHS pickup locations: Parent pick up area AND Bus Run area.
Parents/guardians are asked to bring their children to the pick up sites each day per Texas Department of Agriculture requirements.
This service is free for all kids through the age of 18. Even the young ones that do not yet attend school.

DISTRICT-WIDE FREE MEALS FOR STUDENTS
The Jefferson Independent School District is proud to announce a district-wide change in policy of serving meals to children under the National School Lunch Program and National School Breakfast Program for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Jefferson I.S.D. is now eligible to operate the Community Eligbility Provision (CEP), which provides free breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminates the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. The approach reduces burdens for families and school administrators and helps ensure that student receive meals.
