The Houston Independent School District will kick off its Summer Meal Program on June 4 at more than 190 area schools, where both breakfast and lunch will be served for free to children ages 1 to 18.
Children do not need to be enrolled in summer school to participate in the program, and no paperwork, registration, or proof of income is required. Adults may purchase breakfast for $2.25 and lunch for $3.75.
The program runs through Aug. 2. To view a map of where meals are being served, including breakfast and lunch serving times, visit houstonisd.org/freesummermeals.
All HISD meals are nutritionally balanced to ensure children receive the vitamins and nutrients needed to maintain a healthy diet. Last summer, HISD Nutrition Services served more than 1.1 million free meals to Houston-area children.
