SFUSD offering free meals for youth under 18 starting Thursday

The San Francisco Unified School District will offer free to-go meals to all San Franciscans under 18 regardless of their enrollment status beginning Thursday.

Eighteen SFUSD locations will offer two days’ worth of prepared meals on Tuesdays from 2-2:30 p.m. and Thursdays. To get started, families must provide the child’s name and birthdate to receive a “grab-and-go card” to pick up a meal. Adults can pick up meals for children without a child present.

“We know this is a difficult time for all children and families in San Francisco. While schools provide children with education and social and emotional support, they are also centers of the community. By providing free meals to all children in the community, we hope to lessen the burden on San Francisco families during this difficult time,” said Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews.

This program was created after the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a policy allowing for school districts to provide free meals for all children 18 and under through June 2021.
