TAMPA, Fla. -- The Hillsborough County School District will have a new policy in place for families picking up weekly meals.

The school district announced the families must give the student ID number before picking up food.

If you do not have a student number because your child is too young or attends a school outside of the district, you can also use your child’s name and date of birth.

The change in policy comes after some distribution sites ran out of food last week because some of the students went to multiple sites for meals.

Some of the meals from the program even showed up for sale online.
