BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – For those that use the EBRPSS Meal Delivery Service, there is some good news on Tuesday.

If you are registered for the service, then you need to know that it is starting up again on August 31.

According to East Baton Rouge Parish School System, “Registered parents will receive a text or email to confirm that someone will be home to receive the meals.”

If you are not registered for home delivery, Focus Foods is going to be at three different locations throughout the city where you can come pick up a food box.

From Tuesday through Saturday, families can pick up a food box at these locations:

  • Glen Oaks Middle School (on Monarch St) Parking Lot 
  • St. Pius Church Parking Lot 
  • Sacred Heart Church Parking Lot 

These locations will be open from 11:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System is providing further details about this service below:

Parents can register students to receive home delivery of meal boxes using the link below.  The normal cut-off time for home meal deliveries in the next week is on each Thursday; however, Focus Foods will try to accommodate home deliveries to parents who register for meal service this week. Virtual and in-person students are eligible to receive meals. Additional details are available on the EBR Child Nutrition website

When school resumes after the storm, students attending school will continue to eat breakfast and lunch at school. All the above home meal deliveries can continue after the storm. This meal service does not impact the receipt of P-EBT benefits. Parents can register for DSNAP benefits using the following link –  http://www.dcfs.louisiana.gov/page/dsnap-registration
