SFUSD Grab & Go Meals
TCS has a significant enough ratio of free/reduced cost meal eligible students that SFUSD qualifies all our students for free meals.
Although all our students are eligible to receive free meals, we strongly encourage families to complete the Multipurpose Family Income Form (MFIF) through SchoolCafe.
All SFUSD students can pick up meals at any SFUSD Grab & Go meal distribution site:
Meals will only be provided for students (i.e. no family meal bags). Families must provide the student’s barcode for their meal account when picking up meals. Each student’s barcode was mailed to households. For families that did not receive their barcode, or need assistance, please contact:
Student Nutrition Services

Glide Food Distribution
Every Friday at 1 pm, Glide has food distribution for families; they do not have to be enrolled in the Glide program as it is for the families in the community. Food distribution ends when all the boxes have been given out. They also have diapers and formulas however, families must first register with the Glide family resource center to receive them. The line gets pretty long and they run out fairly quickly so it is recommended that families line up earlier; children do not have to be present in order to receive a box.
Glide address is 434 Ellis Street between Jones and Leavenworth.
The Department of Children, Youth and Families and the SF Recreation and Parks Department are developing Community Hubs to open on September 14.
Community Hubs will provide support for close to 6,000 students who are utilizing the SFUSD Distance Learning Curriculum. City officials are prioritizing low-income families, children in public housing or the foster care system, homeless youth, and others in living situations that make remote learning particularly challenging.
At first, the hubs will to students in kindergarten through sixth grade, a group that has lower rates of COVID-19 infection. Officials will consider making the hubs available to older students. They will operate five days a week during ordinary school hours and will be staffed by experienced nonprofits and other organizations.
Registration for the Community Hubs will run August 15 through September 4.
Two step process to apply and register:

Community Based Organizations will outreach and enroll eligible families (HOPE SF Residents, Public Housing Residents, SRO Residents, Foster Care Youth, Homeless Youth, African American Youth, Latinx Youth, Pacific Islander Youth, Low-Income Asian Youth, English Language Learners) once registration opens August 24.
Parents/guardians will complete a Community Learning Hub application.
