PASO ROBLES — Beginning Tuesday, Mar. 17, the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District will provide a free food drive-thru service for children during the school closure.

PRJUSD requires children to be present to receive the meals provided. For any homeless and foster students, or if transportation is an issue for you and you would like access to free meals, please reach out directly to Joseph Williams at to arrange for meal dropoff.

To implement social distancing and to limit the spread of COVID-19, the program is solely for the pick-up of meals. No meals will be consumed on-site.

PRJUSD officials encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing at the school site once meals are distributed.


The following schools will provide a lunch for the day of pick up and a breakfast. Both meals will be available for pick up between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning on Tuesday, Mar. 17. Meals will be distributed in the parking lot or bus lane at each participating school. Designated pick up locations are Georgia Brown Elementary, George Flamson Middle, Paso Robles High School, and Winifred Pifer Elementary. Meals are free to anybody under the age of 18.
