Dear Families,


As you know, RSU 29 has been committed to providing food and nutrition to our students even during this time while school is closed. We currently have several food sites and deliver multiple meals three times a week. 

In addition, we are announcing a new program that will deliver meals at your doorstep for free if you are unable to access any of our meal delivery locations. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University. Your child(ren) enrolled at RSU 29 are eligible to participate in the program. 


When you sign up for a Meals-to-You, every other week you’ll get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child ages 1-18 in your household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches/suppers—enough food for each child for two weeks. This program is a limited program that will run until the end of June, 2020.


All foods are shelf stable, which means you don’t have to worry about them expiring anytime soon.  If you aren’t home when the box is delivered, no worries. The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, you don’t have to worry about refrigerating the foods immediately. If you will be unable to pick up your box(es) on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family get it. Receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.


To sign up, just visit https://mealstoyou.org/emergency-meals-to-you-application/ between May 7 - May 15, 2020.   In order to sign up, you will need a valid email address and phone number.  Please know that applications can not be accepted after May 15.


 If you are unable to sign up online, we would be happy to assist you.   If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Curriculum Coordinator,  Melanie Blais at 538-3810.
