Ready to Heat Meals will Include Breakfast and Lunch

Curbside meals, prepared by the District’s Nutrition & Food Service Department, will consist of ready to heat and eat breakfast and lunch. Tuesday meal pick-ups will consist of four breakfasts and four lunches for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Monday. There is no pick-up on Fridays and no meals for Fridays since there is no school on those days.

“Both the Curbside Grab and Go Meals, in-person summer school meals and meals for special education students will be free thanks to funding from the United States Department of Agriculture Summer Food Service Program,” says Donna Pittenger, Executive Director of the Katy ISD Nutrition & Food Service Department.

“Meal benefit applications will not be required this summer, nor for the upcoming school year as part of this federal program,” says Pittenger.

Identification Required if Picking up without a Child

If parents are picking up meals without a child present, then they will need identification for each child. Acceptable identification would be a Katy ISD ID, report card, or birth certificate.

Curbside “Grab and Go” Summer Schedule:


Cinco Ranch High School and Morton Ranch High School

Every Tuesday (from June 1-July 27)

4 p.m.- 6 p.m.
