Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 1, students will pay for meals based on their meal benefits eligibility. In addition, a student’s ID number will need to be provided in order to receive meals beginning September 1. Parents/guardians may pick up meals without a student present if they can provide the ID number of the student. Please remember that Brentwood is a food distribution site.
