SAISD continues to host free summer meals program

Once again, thousands of students who depend on free breakfast and lunch at school as their main source of nutrition, can continue to enjoy these meals at no charge during the summer.  As part of the Texas Department of Agriculture’s “Seamless Summer Nutrition Program,” SAISD campuses hosting summer school programs will offer anyone 18 years old and younger one breakfast and one lunch, free of charge, regardless of ability to pay.

The program will run June 9 or June 13 (depending upon location) through July 1 at the sites listed on the second page. Breakfast will be served from 7 to 8 a.m. and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The “Seamless Summer Nutrition Program” is required by law in Districts with a large demographic of students eligible for free meals. No application is required and all participants are eligible regardless of whether they are enrolled in an SAISD academic or recreational summer program.

“The federally-funded program enables children to receive nutritious meals throughout the summer,” said SAISD’s Executive Director of Food and Child Nutrition Services Sally Cody.  “Regular and appropriate nutrition is very important for the physical, emotional, and mental growth of a child.”
