INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) announced a free meals program Thursday for students during remote learning.

According to IPS, students heading back to school with virtual learning, the IPS Food Service Team will provide breakfast and lunch to all IPS students four days a week, beginning Aug. 17.

Individually wrapped, prepackaged meals will be distributed from more than 55 IPS school parking lots from 12 to 3 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

IPS said meals are only available to students enrolled in IPS schools.

A Thursday news release provided the following information:

When picking up meals, students or their parents/legal guardians must provide the student’s name and grade, and the school they attend. Student IDs are not required, but will help expedite the student identification process during meal pick-ups.
