Garland ISD offering free meals

Summer for students means no more classes and fun in the sun, but for many kids it also means they may not get three square meals every day. According to the district, during this school year about 65 percent of Garland ISD students qualified for free or reduced meals.

According to Student Nutrition Services, 67,493 summer meals were served last year.

For several years GISD has held a summer feeding program to keep students and area children fed during the summer. This summer’s feeding program kicked off June 4 and will run through July 18 at select campuses and open to anyone from ages 1-18, Monday-Friday.

The meals are free, but the district asks that students be accompanied by an adult and that they eat their meal on site. Registration is not required.

Breakfast is 8:30 – 9 a.m., lunch is noon to 12:30 p.m., 11-11:30 a.m. for Pathfinder Achievement Center.
