STISD to Suspend Curbside Meal Pick-up from June 29 through July 17

STISD will suspend its curbside meal pick-up from June 29 through July 17, 2020. During this time period, the district and campuses will be closed and will not be serving meals to the local communities.

The district will resume its grab-and-go meal distribution for children ages 18 years and younger on Monday, July 20. Beginning again on this day, the district will provide breakfast and lunch meals for pick-up by parents between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays only, at the four campus locations where meals are currently being served.

These meals are provided at no cost to the family, and children do not have to be enrolled within STISD to receive meals.

Curbside meal distribution locations include:

Edinburg: Gateway to the World Library parking lot- located between South Texas ISD Preparatory Academy and South Texas ISD World Scholars (510 S. Sugar Rd., Edinburg)

Mercedes: South Texas ISD Health Professions (100 Med High Drive, Mercedes) - loop between Health Professions and Science Academy

Olmito: South Texas ISD Medical Professions (10650 N Expressway 77/83, Olmito) - south side parking lot of the campus, first entrance off of the frontage road

San Benito: South Texas ISD Rising Scholars Academy (151 S. Helen Moore Rd., San Benito)- parking lot off of Paso Real, in front of cafeteria

To allow for the packaging of several days’ worth of meals, the district will serve meals that can be refrigerated and warmed up. Instructions for storing and reheating will be provided along with each meal.
