ECSD to Provide Supplemental School Meals Starting March 23, 2020
Posted 3/20/20

Escambia County School District’s (ECSD) Food Service Department is planning to begin providing supplemental school meals on March 23, Monday through Friday, at the following locations:

Bratt Elementary School, 5721 North Hwy. 99, Century, FL 32535

Bellview Elementary School, 4425 Bellview Ave., Pensacola, FL 32526

Warrington Middle School, 459 South Old Corry Field Rd., Pensacola, FL 32507

C.A. Weis Elementary School, 2701 North Q St., Pensacola, FL 32505

Booker T. Washington High School, 6000 College Pkwy., Pensacola, FL 32504 

ECSD will be adding 33 school sites on Monday, March 30th. The list will be updated this time, next week.

According to the USDA’s policy, the child or children must be present to receive meals. They must be 18 and younger; and meals are designed to be carried away and consumed off campus (cafeteria/dining rooms will not be open).

Each child will receive breakfast and lunch in the same visit and service will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Children do not have to be a student at that school in order to pick up meals there.

Meals will be distributed in a curbside pick-up operation. Food items will be in to-go containers and will consist of ready-to-eat food items that should be consumed when received or should be quickly refrigerated for consumption at a later time. 

Maps of these five campuses are attached showing which driveway should be used to access the pick-up points. Parents will not need to get out of their car or enter the building.

Additional sites: If families need to locate a source that is closer to them, they can go to: https://summerbreakspot.freshfromflorida.com

Users can enter their address, and set a distance range, to see a map showing food service sites near them. The sites are labeled “Summer Food Service,” but they will be available this Spring due to the pandemic. Sites opening this spring may not be the same as the sites that were open last summer, so please check the locations, dates and times before you go.

For anyone without internet service, call 211, the United Way of West Florida, for assistance.

Also, as traffic patterns are established, and the need can be assessed, site locations may be adjusted based on participation. Therefore, parents might want to periodically check the list of open sites.
