LAND O' LAKES, Fla. — Pasco County Schools is making it easier for students to receive free meals.

Starting on Monday, Sept. 14, students who attend class on campus will still be able to get meals in the school cafeteria and now those meals will be free.

Also, students who attend school remotely will receive meals on a drive-through basis. Those meals will also be free.

Here is how the program will work for students working remotely:

Monday, Sept. 14 - Thursday, Sept. 17, the daily drive-through meal distribution will continue at the designated site time and meals will not be free.

More information can be found here.

On Friday, Sept. 18, the school district will serve a week's worth of meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, curbside to online students, quarantine students and children in the community 18 years and under.

The district will keep the same times established for curbside feeding. Meal reservation forms are also encouraged for families who want to participate.
