Although, like all school districts in San Diego County, Escondido schools have closed to protect students from the spread of the Coronavirus, students will be able to get free meals during this period.
Any student age 2 to 18 can go to any school site providing meals and receive food.
Daily prepared meals will be provided free of charge, distributed via drive-thru or walk-up by the district’s Food and Nutrition Services department.
Each child 18 years or younger may take one lunch and one breakfast for the next day. Children must be present to receive meals and all food must be consumed offsite.
Escondido Union Elementary and Escondido Union High school districts will open eight locations to cover breakfast and lunch on weekdays.
Escondido, Orange Glen, and San Pasqual high schools will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for lunch.
Central, Juniper, and Rock Springs elementary schools, Del Dios Academy, and Mission Middle School will be open from 6 to 8 a.m. for breakfast.
