St. Mary Parish Schools Beginning Program to Deliver Meals to Children’s Homes

UPDATE:
St. Mary Parish Schools has extended the deadline for parents or guardians to apply for the Meals-to-You Program to Tuesday, March 31st
St. Mary Parish Schools endeavors to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time of
emergency school closure. As such, the school system is announcing a new program that will deliver meals
at your doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between St. Mary
Parish Schools, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.
For a family to participate, at least one child in the household must:
• attend a CEP School (Aucoin Elementary, Wyandotte Elementary, Morgan City Junior High, Morgan
City High, Maitland Elementary, Norman Elementary, Berwick Elementary, Bayou Vista Elementary,
Hattie Watts Elementary, Patterson Junior High, Patterson High, Centerville High, Foster Elementary,
LaGrange Elementary, Franklin Junior, Franklin High, Raintree Elementary, B. Edward Boudreaux
Middle and West St. Mary High)OR
• be designated as free or reduced-priced meals eligible at non-CEP schools (Berwick High and Berwick
Junior High)
When parents or guardians sign-up for Meals-to-You, every other week they will receive a Meals-to-You
box delivered to their home for each child ages 1-18. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10
lunches/suppers—enough food for each child for a full week!
All foods items are shelf stable, which means parents/guardians do not have to worry about them expiring
anytime soon. With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to the residence, so
there are no worries about:
• Extra trips to the grocery store
• Extra money spent on food
• Extra time planning meals your kids will like
If parents/guardians are not at home when the box is delivered, no worries. The boxes are packed for
security, and because the food is shelf stable, there is no concern about refrigerating foods immediately. If
you will be unable to pick up your box(es) on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family member
retrieve them for you. Receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.
HOW DO YOU SIGN UP? All parents/ guardians will need to complete an online application form and
submit it by Tuesday, March 31st.
Access to the online form is available at the following link:

quickly as possible.
