On Friday, Big Spring ISD announced that beginning today that all students across the district will eat lunch for free. BSISD students from Pre-K through 6th grade have already been receiving free lunch, now that will be extended to all students throughout the district.
The district’s child nutrition program has changed to SSO (Seamless Summer Option). This allows all students and community kids to eat free until May 2021. This program allows the district to students and community members on Saturday and Sunday.
Students will need to notify cafeteria staff by the end of Wednesday if a weekend meal is needed. Weekend meals will be handed out from 3:30 - 4:30 PM on Friday afternoon. Grab and go meals for the community can be picked up curbside at Moss, Marcy, and Goliad. Breakfast can be picked up from 9:30-10:30 AM and lunch will be distributed from 3:30-4:30 PM.
