Students in Central Texas may be learning from home to start the school year, but that doesn't mean districts stopped preparing meals for them.
KVUE has reached out to school districts across the area about what they're doing for student meal pick-up plans.
Here is what parents need to know:
Austin ISD will provide free meals for any child under 19 years old – and their parents or caregivers – through Dec. 31. Meals are picked up at various curbside locations Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A list of meal sites and more information about the district's meal service can be found here.
Beginning Aug. 24, Bastrop ISD will provide registered students with curbside pick-up Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in a school's bus lane area. Families of an elementary, intermediate or middle school student can pick up meals at locations where at least one of their children attends. High school students must pick up meals at a high school. Parents can pick up meals without students, but they must have the student's ID. Prices are based on a student's eligibility for free or reduced meals, except for CEP campuses where every student eats free. See more details and location options here.
Meal service resumes on Sept. 8. The district will have about 10% of its students on campus, who will eat in the cafeterias. The remainder of students will have the option to pick up meals (breakfast and lunch) curb-side at all of its campuses. The prices are listed online. Students who qualify for free lunch will not have to pay.
Lake Travis ISD
Packaged meals for breakfast and lunch are available to Lake Travis ISD students Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at these locations.

Families will need to exit their vehicles and make their selections in person on the school serving line.
