Coronavirus Response and Feed the Kids Distribution of Food Plan

Chris Gensheer   -  

Our Feed the Kids program provides supplemental food for food-insecure kids in our Mansfield ISD. Usually, these accompany the kids home as they leave school for the weekend. With Coronavirus and the schools shut down, we are adapting our program to provide more food per bag and have multiple distribution times and locations. See below for details.

 

Monday and Wednesday 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. 

 

Open to families in the Mansfield ISD boundaries.

Food will be given out for children 18 and younger

 (exceptions for students with special needs who are still in school and over the age of 18)

Children should either be in the car or you’ll need to show proof of identity for children. (Examples: School ID, Library card, Insurance, birth certificate, report cards, etc.)

First come first serve.
