Federal guidelines now require parents to provide documentation for students not present for food distribution


To meet federal guidelines, Dallas ISD is asking parents to provide documentation of school enrollment when picking up meals at district sites without their children. Moving forward, when children ages 0–18 are not with parents at the meal distribution sites, parents should bring one of the following to collect student meals:

  • Student ID Card
  • Individual student report cards
  • Official Letter/email from school listing children enrolled
  • Attendance record from parent portal of school website
  • Birth certificate

Dallas ISD has emailed a letter to parents with email addresses on file to assist with this request. Parents may show this document from their phone.

Dallas ISD serves bulk grab-and-go meals every Thursday at more than 40 schools.
