Spring break benefits assistance and meals

Dallas ISD schools and offices will be closed March 11-15 for spring break. However, to ensure students continue to have access to nourishing meals, Food and Child Nutrition Services plans to provide meal service on a drive-up basis on Monday, March 11. Team members can still get assistance with their benefits.  

Dallas ISD Food and Child Nutrition Services will provide meals to every child 18 years and younger. Home cooking instructions will be provided at the pick-up location and will also be posted on the FCNS website. Children do not have to be present to claim meals. 

Meals will include two breakfast meals and two lunch meals per child. To find the meal distribution time and location most convenient to you, visit www.dallasisd.org.

The Benefits Call Center will be open normal business hours to provide any needed assistance.
