LEON COUNTY, Fla.(WTXL) — The Leon County School District is launching a one stop meal pick-up and mobile meal service to better assist parents and students.

The district will be participating in the USDA Summer Food Service Program at Fairview Middle School starting Tuesday.

This means meals will be provided to all children free of charge at one location. In addition, meals are also going mobile.

Officials say buses will leave from Fairview to deliver meals in the 32304 and 32305 Zip codes.

Both of these programs will be launching on Tuesday, September 29.

One Stop Meal Pick-Up The One Stop Meal Pick-Up program will allow Digital Academy students and parents to pick up meals for all students/children 18 years and younger at one location, even if they attend different schools, or don’t currently attend Leon County Schools.

Curbside pick-up is available between 11:00 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Fairview Middle School at 3415 Zillah Street, Tallahassee, FL 32305.

Additionally, to help better connect our Digital Academy families in the 32304 and 32305 Zip codes with meals, LCS has initiated Mobile Meals.

Buses loaded with meals will depart from Fairview and deliver breakfast and lunch five days a week from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at designated bus stops.

The buses will be using six routes which serve the Bond Elementary, Pineview Elementary, Fairview Middle School, R. Frank Nims Middle School and James S. Rickards High School zones.

LCS says all health and safety protocols will be followed on the buses and at all bus stops. A list of routes with stop locations and times can be found here.
