Newport-Mesa Nutrition Services Update: Free Grab-And-Go Meals
Posted 10/30/20


Update: Breakfast will also be included in the grab-and-go meals at elementary schools beginning Monday, November 2, 2020.

Effective Wednesday, September 2, 2020, the United States Department of Agriculture has reinstated the waiver to school districts throughout the country that will allow Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) to resume serving free meals to all students without requiring a student ID or payment. As of now, this waiver will be in effect until December 31, 2020. 

NMUSD will continue to serve daily grab-and-go meals at all school sites except Ensign Intermediate and Corona del Mar Middle/High School, due to ongoing construction. Students from Ensign, Corona del Mar, or Cloud Campus may pick up grab-and-go meals from any other NMUSD school. Locations and serving times are subject to change.

Meals will be available for pick up Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Students can pick up meals from any school. As a reminder no paperwork is required; students do not need to be present; and meals must be consumed off-site.
