“Surf’s up with School Breakfast”

To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, Dallas ISD schools will celebrate School Breakfast Week (SBW) during March 4-8, 2024. 

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. Fortunately, Dallas ISD schools offer nutritious school breakfasts to all students free of charge, complete with fruit and low-fat or fat-free milk, to ensure students are fueled for learning every school day. 

All week, Dallas ISD will celebrate with fun activities and serve healthy menu items to help students realize that starting the day with school breakfast will help them “ride the wave” to nutritious habits and a healthy lifestyle. Planned activities include outreach to local schools and communities, social media promotion, and a Cool Tropics Surf’s Up art contest. The Cool Tropics art contest will give Dallas ISD students the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, such as a bike, laptop, or $1,000 scholarship.

Dallas ISD provides free meals to all students, regardless of income. The free meal program includes breakfast, lunch, and after-school meals during the week, as well as breakfast and lunch on Saturdays for students participating in Saturday educational programs. Students can receive meals during winter, spring, and Thanksgiving breaks.
