FWISD Makes Change To One Of The “Meals To Go” Sites
The Fort Worth ISD must relocate the “MealsToGo” site at Eastern Hills High School to West Handley Elementary School effective Monday, April 27. The change is required because of construction progress at Eastern Hills High School.
West Handley Elementary School is located at 2749 Putnam in Fort Worth. The distance to West Handley from EHHS is less than a mile.
The Fort Worth ISD offers meal distribution at 18 different school sites across the city on Mondays and Thursday between the hours of 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. The District provides six meals per child on each distribution day.
The two day-a-week schedule was recently implemented because it:
Provides an increase in the recommended social distancing guidelines and reduces gatherings for parents and students from five days a week to two days per week,
Promotes more parent and student engagement in online instruction daily versus the time required to pick up meals daily,
Reduces employee interaction from five days to two days per week,
Supports the City of Fort Worth’s Safer at Home resolution,
And, follows Texas Department of Agriculture revised regulations.
A complete list of all “MealsToGo” sites can be found on the COVID-19 page of www.fwisd.org.
The “MealsToGo’ Program has been a successful partnership between the District and its food service vendor Sodexo MAGIC.
