All children in Oakland – 18 years old and younger – and students in OUSD’s Young Adult Program can receive free meals.
There are two ways to receive this food: (1) Free Home Delivery, or (2) Pick Up
(1) Free Home Delivery
To support families who can not go to our food hubs because they are supporting students during distance learning, OUSD families living in Oakland will be able to sign up for weekly home delivery of OUSD meals. Once enrolled, families will receive:
An OUSD student and any of their siblings (18 years old and younger) who live in the same household are eligible for meal delivery. At least one child in the household must attend an OUSD school.
To sign up, you will need the OUSD ID number of at least one child in the household. Most students know their ID number. The ID number is the student’s lunch number and their technology password during distance learning. If you do not know your child’s ID number, contact your school site.
Families can enroll directly by filling out one of these google forms:
If a family has an issue, needs to change or cancel their meal service, we ask that they please complete this change form.
(2) Pick Up
Meals are available at 13 locations throughout the city. Families no longer have to prove their students attend District-run schools. Students attending charter schools, private schools, or homeschooled are all eligible. Pick Up days are Mondays and Thursdays, between 8am and 1pm. Please note:
Multiple days worth of food can be picked up at once. (Three meals for each weekday, and two meals for each weekend day.)
Meal Pick Up Locations starting in 2021:
Oakland At Risk can match people over with a low-risk volunteer who lives in your community and wants to help you by getting groceries, picking up prescriptions, and checking in every couple of days.
NOTE: AT THIS TIME THEY ARE ALSO ACCEPTING PIEDMONT, SAN LEANDRO, AND ALAMEDA RESIDENTS.
