For many children in Lafayette Parish Public schools, one of the big things that happens for them each school day is that they receive good nutrition in the form of school meals.

With Governor John Bel Edwards' proclamation Friday closing K-12 schools, plenty of students and their parents were worried about meals for their students. Food insecurity for many students is a daily worry.

The Lafayette Parish School System is reporting that daily meals for public school students who need them will begin tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

Lafayette Parish School System Spokeswoman Allison Dickerson says that both breakfast and lunch will be available for pick-up to school students.

Now, there are some guidelines. Dickerson says the student that is getting the good must be present to get their meals. She adds that there will be NO exceptions to this rule.

You will be able to pick-up your child's food between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

The pick-up is going to be available for students during each day of the work week.

You will not need to get out our your car. The food will be delivered to you through the window of your car, or they will be given straight to the student if they walk up to the school.
