Yes! You can still sign up to get meal boxes this summer if you are receiving SNAP or any other form of assistance. Plus, signing up for Meals-to-You this summer will not affect your eligibility for other assistance programs.

Signing Up

You will need to be ready to enter the following information: (1) a street address or P.O. Box where you have received a package in the past 12 months so that we know where we can ship your approved meal boxes, (2) the school district of each child under 18 in your household so that we can learn whether your household is eligible for Meals-to-You, and (3) medically documented dietary accommodations for each child under 18 in your household so that we can tell our food distributors about any dietary accommodations for each meal box.

Start by checking the Participating Districts page to make sure your child’s school district is participating in Meals-to-You. If you see the school district on that page and you do not see the school district on the sign-up form, then that means your school district is no longer allowing new households to sign themselves up for Meals-to-You.

Remember, if your school district is Yukon Flats or Yukon Koyukuk, then you will not see your school district on the sign-up form because you will not sign up your household yourself. You will contact your school district so they can sign you up.

Shipping

The U.S. Postal Service or UPS will ship the meal boxes. Most often, UPS ships meal boxes to street addresses and the U.S. Postal Service ships meal boxes to P.O. Boxes.

Meals-to-You has not set the first shipping date yet. Check back here for an update.

Meals-to-You aims to ship weekly meal boxes to households during the summer. The exact number of weeks you will get a meal box depends on when your school district’s summer starts and ends.

All foods in the meal box are shelf stable, which means you don’t have to worry about the foods expiring or needing to be refrigerated right away. Also, the meal box will be packaged securely so that there should not be problems with ants or tiny pests getting into the meal box. If you know you won’t be home for a long time, we encourage you to coordinate with a family member or neighbor to pick up the meal box for you to help make sure the meal box makes it to your household!
