Effective November 2, 2020, EBRPSS curbside grab-n-go meal service will end, and the EBR Child Nutrition Program will partner with TDP Group LLC to deliver boxed meals to the homes of virtual-learning students. Only those families participating in 100% virtual learning will be eligible to register for the home delivery service. Meal delivery registration must be completed each week.
Meals will be delivered once per week Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. (excluding school holidays, school closures, or severe weather days). Meals cannot be left on a doorstep; therefore, someone must be present to sign for the package. Deliveries will only be made to addresses in East Baton Rouge Parish school attendance zones.
Forms must be submitted by no later than 5 pm on Oct. 31, for delivery routing purposes. Families participating in virtual learning will receive the registration email today, and those who meet the registration requirements will receive the boxed meals next week (Nov. 2-6).
Beginning Nov. 2, the survey link will reopen every Monday and will close on Thursdays at 5 p.m. through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
To sign up for the once per week meal delivery service, please submit one form per household listing all 100% virtual-learning students residing in the home. On Monday mornings, families will receive an email with the day and time of the expected delivery window.
Meal boxes will include a combination of fresh bread products, cereal, frozen entrees, canned fruit and vegetables, and shelf-stable milk. Meals include 5 lunches, 5 breakfasts, 5 suppers and 5 snacks.
Questions concerning delivery should be directed to Jeff Landry at the TDP Group/Focus Foods: 225-936-4750. For questions about the food, please email email@example.com.
