In an attempt to maintain at least six feet of distance when handing out meals, we will ask families how many meals they need, put the packages on a table, then step away while a family member picks up the meal(s).

School buses will deliver meals to the following school areas between approximately 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Click on the school links below to see the updated bus routes and the estimated serve times at each stop: 

Any child, ages 1-18 (including toddlers), can receive one breakfast and one lunch per day to eat at home. No identification or proof of school enrollment is required. Meals are not to be eaten on site. There will be no public access inside the schools. Schools and bus stops are not places to socialize or congregate at this time.  Meals will be served on a first-come first-served basis.  Locations and times may change. 

If your child requires special meal accommodations, please contact the Boise School District Food & Nutrition Services office at 208-854-4067 to make arrangements.
