Free lunches and breakfasts will continue to be served to children up to age 18 at select Lake County locations throughout the summer, but starting next week Mascotte Charter will no longer be a pickup site as participation at that location has decreased.

Parents who have been using the Mascotte site can choose other locations, regardless of where their children are enrolled.

The district began distributing grab-and-go meals shortly after Spring Break, as schools remained closed because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

To receive meals for their children, parents and guardians are asked to complete a registration form. Once it is approved by the district’s Food Services office, parents will receive a card to place in the front window of their car. The card will indicate the parent’s name and the number of meals they are approved to receive for their children.

These registered parents will be listed on a roster at their designated school. Their names will be checked off when they pick up meals from that school. They will not be required to have their children with them.

Meals can be picked up from 11 am to 1 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the following locations:


  • Astatula
  • Cypress Ridge
  • Eustis Heights
  • Grassy Lake
  • Leesburg
  • Lost Lake
  • Pine Ridge
  • Sawgrass Bay
  • Sorrento
  • Tavares
  • Treadway
  • Triangle
  • Umatilla
  • Villages of Lady Lake


  • Cecil E. Gray


The sites listed below use a different vendor and have different operating hours. They distribute meals Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

  • Spring Creek Charter
  • Altoona School
  • Sandy Acres Community, 24998 SE Hwy 42, Umatilla, FL 32784
