Capistrano Unified offers students free curbside lunches during COVID-19 school closures

The Capistrano Unified School District Food & Nutrition Services program will provide an opportunity for families to drive through and pick up free lunch meals for any child 18 and under at four Capistrano Unified school sites.

Meals will be provided for free regardless of what school students attend or if they receive free, reduced or paid status lunch. Children must be present in the car in order for meals to be provided.

Meals will be served between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday starting March 16. This drive through service will take place in the parking lot or bus lane at each participating school. Families are asked to stay in your car and meals will be passed through based on the number of children in the car.

Meals will be available at the following schools:

  • San Juan Elementary: 31642 El Camino Real, San Juan Capistrano
  • Las Palmas Elementary: 1101 Calle Puente, San Clemente
  • Hidden Hills Elementary: 25142 Hidden Hills Rd, Laguna Niguel
  • Marco Forster Middle School: 25601 Camino Del Avion, San Juan Capistrano
  • Las Flores Elementary School: 25862 Antonio Pkwy, Rancho Santa Margarita
  • Wood Canyon Elementary School: 23431 Knollwood, Aliso Viejo

Update (March 17): Beginning March 18, a sack breakfast will be provided in addition to the sack lunch meal. The breakfast meal will contain a bar or cereal cup with fruit and milk. It will be meant to enjoy the following morning.

This program will be solely for the pickup of meals and meals will not be consumed on site.

The school district encourages families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site once meals have been distributed, continue to wash your hands often, sneeze or cough into a tissue and stay at home if you are sick.

Meals will include an entree, fruit, vegetables and milk. Items will be cold foods such as yogurt with granola or frozen entrees with heating instructions on how to heat at home. For special dietary requests, please call 949-234-9503.
