Food Assistance for Families

ISM School Lunch Information

Free meals for children 18 and under are no longer available at neighborhood schools, as they were this past spring and summer, unless your child is enrolled in that school.

All ISM families, including those who qualify for Free and Reduced Price Meals, may now order one meal kit per week, per student. Parents/guardians or students can pick up the kits each Tuesday in front of the MUR between 11:30am and 1:30pm.

Free and Reduced Price Meals Application [English]    [Español]

For the health and safety of our staff and community, during pickup all parents/guardians and students must:

  • Wear a mask properly placed over mouth and nose at all times.
  • Approach the campus by walking up the concrete ramp, and leave down the sidewalk and stairs.
  • Maintain 6 feet distance from ISM staff and other family groups at all times.
  • Place a printed Boonli receipt or hand-written copy of each student's name, grade, and Boonli order number on the table then step back. A staff member will verify the meal selections, name, and grade level of each student.
  • Pick up the pre-bagged, selected meals from the table once a staff member has placed them there and stepped back.
