School district will begin serving home delivery meals this Thursday

The Vermilion Parish School Board will provide grab and go meals at Cecil Picard Elementary, Dozier Elementary, Eaton Park Elementary, Forked Island/E. Broussard Elementary, Gueydan High School, J. H. Williams Middle, and Rene Rost Middle until Thursday, April 9, 2020.
In an effort to continue to provide meals and maintain the safety and health of the staff, students, parents/guardians and community, the school district is announcing a new program that will deliver meals to your doorstep for free.
This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between the local district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.
Your student(s) enrolled with the Vermilion Parish School Board are eligible to participate in the program.
When you sign up to get a Meals-to-You, every other week you will get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child 1-18 years in your household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches that are kid-friendly and shelf stable — enough food for each child for 2 weeks!
