Back in March when the pandemic first started, Austin ISD pivoted overnight to start offering curbside meal pickup for students, no small task for the largest school district in this region. Just a couple of months later, they decided to expand on that and also offer meals to those taking care of the students – whether a parent, grandparent, other relative or friend.
The caregiver meals are being put together by local eateries before being distributed at 48 AISD locations. Participating restaurants include Henbit of Emmer and Rye, L’Oca d’Oro, Colleen’s Kitchen, Contigo, Rosedale Kitchen, Hillside Pharmacy, and Easy Tiger
And thanks to the opportunity with AISD, along with the other adaptations, the owners of Easy Tiger have been able to not only stay in business but plan to open a new location in East Austin in February.
