FREE MEALS THROUGH DECEMBER
USDA has issued a nationwide waiver, allowing Allen ISD to offer meals FREE at no charge through December 2020 for all elementary and middle school campuses and virtual learners picking up pre-ordered meals.
Beginning Sept. 21, 2020, Allen ISD provides free meals to students as part of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program. Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), this program will allow any student in elementary and middle school (Pre-K-8th) to receive a free breakfast and lunch meal in the school cafeteria, with the option to purchase a-la-carte items.
Additionally, the District will offer pre-ordered meals for all At Home learners (PK-12) at no cost. Pre-ordered meals can be picked up daily at Boyd Elementary, Rountree Elementary, Curtis Middle School, and Ereckson Middle School from 9:30 – 10:30 AM. The meal will include one lunch and the next day’s breakfast. Heating & holding instructions will be included so that families can heat their lunch at their convenience. Sign up is required and will open every Monday at 2 p.m. and close the following Sunday for the following week.

Lowery Freshmen Center and Allen High School do not participate in the federally funded program and therefore meals will be charged as normal in those cafeterias; however, freshmen & high school students who are learning virtually are able to pre-order and pick up meals at the curbside locations at no cost. Freshmen and high school students qualifying for reduced meals will receive free meals through December 2020. Students eligible for free meals will continue to receive free meals for the 2020-2021 school year.
Parents are encouraged to continue filling out the free and reduced application online at https://www.allenisd.org/domain/37. The benefits from being approved for free or reduced-price meals may include discounts for transportation, standardized tests, college application fees, and technology fees to name a few.
