DRIVE-THROUGH MEAL PICK-UP TO BE OFFERED DURING CLOSURE
With Keller ISD schools closed March 16-27 due to COVID-19 precautions, Sodexo – the District’s food service provider – will provide meals for children under the age of 19 at specific school sites during the closure.
Meals will be served curbside at these five campus sites, and one meal will be provided for each child in the vehicle. By law, Sodexo will not be able to provide more meals than there are children in each vehicle. Meals will be available from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning March 16, at the following campuses:
Basswood Elementary School (3100 Clay Mountain Trail, Fort Worth, 76137)
Caprock Elementary School (12301 Grey Twig Drive, Fort Worth, 76244)
Eagle Ridge Elementary School (4600 Alta Vista Road, Fort Worth, 76244)
Keller-Harvel Elementary School (635 Norma Lane, Keller, 76248)
Whitley Road Elementary School (7600 Whitley Road, Watauga, 76148)
Beginning Tuesday, March 17, six more campuses will also begin hosting meal pick-ups:
Bluebonnet Elementary School (7000 Teal Drive, Fort Worth, 76137)
Friendship Elementary School (5400 Shiver Road, Fort Worth, 76244)

These healthy meals will include protein, grain, fruit, and vegetables. Milk will also be available as an option. Parents are requested to remain in their car as they drive through to pick up meals. Meals are available to any children in Keller ISD and not restricted to students on free/reduced lunch plans.
Additionally, the Community Storehouse has offered its continued support of children and families in our community. The Storehouse will remain open during its normal office hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday) and will offer both emergency food boxes (ID only) and monthly food support (with additional documents). More information, including volunteer opportunities, can be found on its website at CommunityStorehouse.org.
