LAUSD continues to distribute grab-n-go meals during spring break

Even on Spring Break, the Los Angeles Unified School District continues to provide meals to students and community members in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

LAUSD students are on spring break from March 19 through April 2.

Since the start of the pandemic, the district has distributed over 115 million meals.

According to the LAUSD, 80% of its students come from families who live in poverty, and the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately caused job losses among them.

When the pandemic began, the district began providing meals to any student or community member in need. 

Sixty-three Grab & Go Food Centers across Los Angeles provide three meals per person between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday through Friday. On Fridays, meals are provided for Saturday and Sunday.

Sen. Maria Elena Durazo, D-Los Angeles, called the Grab & Go program "a serious lifeline to so many students and families in need during these very difficult times."
