As part of the South Bay Unified School District (SBUSD) meal service, starting on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and continuing every Monday through Dec. 31, all students under the age of 18 will receive free meals. Families with children from other districts, or who are not enrolled in school, are eligible for this service.

Parents/guardians may pick-up meals even if children are not present, however some form of identification for the children is required. Federal guidance requires that meals are only served to children. Acceptable forms of identification include Social Security card, birth certificate, passport, tax return, border crossing ID card, student ID card, etc. Identification documents may be presented on a phone or other device at the time of meal pickup.

The weekly meal distribution will be on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the SBUSD warehouse, located at 1111 Saturn Boulevard in San Diego. Meal service is a drive through operation and walk-ins are accepted.
