The Tamalpais Unified High School District will begin giving away free breakfast and lunch to-go meals at Redwood High School to students in need on April 13 through the end of the school year.

“The health and safety of students and staff are taken very seriously.  Only trained food service staff members will be handling food using approved food handling procedures,” TUHSD Student Nutrition Director Lisa Herberg said in an email to the district on April 10. 

The meal service will take place in the east parking lot at between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Students do not need to have been eligible for the Free or Reduced Lunch program prior to school closures to receive aid, but they must be under the age of 18.

“To keep students and staff safe during meal service, social distancing of six feet is required. Please follow signs and distance markers to the service tables provided for foot and auto traffic,” Herberg said, adding, “Students do not need to be present to pick up meals.”
