Acadia Parish School System

The Acadia Parish School System, after re-assessing a number of variables associated with and not limited to the following: the availability of PPE (personal protective equipment), availability of staff and maintaining a safe working environment, reviewing USDA meal component requirements, etc., will provide a modified Grab-N-Go meal service on Monday, March 30th at the original five food serving sites (Crowley Middle School, Armstrong Middle School, Church Point Elementary School, Iota High School and Estherwood Elementary School) between 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The goal is to provide multiple meals containing individually wrapped food items to children 18 years of age and under for the week. The modified meal service by the school system will allow the district to provide the service while limiting contact in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. State officials have approved our modified plan. We encourage drivers of vehicles to stay in the vehicle and assist us with receiving the meals at each site on Monday, March 30th.

URGENT – The Acadia Parish School System has received preliminary approval for the Emergency-Meals-To-You program in partnership with the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty (and LA Dept of Education). We are still working through the process to finalize. Please continue to respond to our Emergency-Meals-To-You survey located at the Acadia Parish School Board’s website ASAP as the window for indicating interest will close Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

St. Landry Parish Public School Students Will Be Provided Meals by Three O’Clock Project

OPELOUSAS, LA  ​–​​As a result of a new partnership with ​Three O’clock Project​, the students of St. Landry Parish School System (SPPS) will have an opportunity to receive 10 meals per week. Lunch and breakfast for an entire week will be handed out on Mondays at the St. Landry Parish School Board Office at 1013 East Creswell Lane in Opelousas.  Meals can be picked up Monday, April 6, 2020, between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM.  While it will not be necessary for the student to be present in the car, the parent picking the food up will need to provide the student’s name and the school he or she is currently attending. We are so very thankful to ​Three O’clock Project ​for stepping in during this transition period while we await approval of other feeding programs that would provide delivery to the students’ residence.  The meal delivery programs we have applied for are Emergency Meals to You and The Healthy School Food Collaborative. The SLPSS has applied for the ​“Emergency Meals-to-You​,” a program derived from a collaboration between Baylor University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If approved, free meals will be provided to our students for the duration of the ​COVID-19 school closure​.  Another option being explored is ​The Healthy School Food Collaborative​, a meal management program that would also provide meals throughout the duration of the closure. We will keep you updated via social media and our website as to the status of our efforts to provide meals via third-party meal providers. Sign up by 11 AM on Friday, April 2, 2020 by going to ​http://www.slpsb.org/apps/form/meal_delivery_count_options​.  We want to thank all of our volunteers and staff members for the help they provided in providing nearly 30,000 meals to our students from March 16, 2020, to March 31, 2020.
