Free summer meals 

This summer, Dallas ISD is dedicated  to ensuring that no child goes hungry by offering free, nutritious meals to students across the district. The Summer Food Service Program—a U.S. Department of Agriculture initiative—provides healthy meals to children 18 and younger, as well as enrolled students up to 21 years old with disabilities.

“Because we are committed to the health and well-being of all Dallas ISD students, healthy ‘no-cost’ meals will be available to all young people across our community,” said Debi Rowley, executive director of Food and Child Nutrition Services. “Our meals meet or exceed every USDA health requirement, and feature items like lean proteins, whole grains, multiple fruits and vegetables, and milk.” 

To kick off this year’s summer program, Food and Child Nutrition Services will host an event at H.S. Thompson Elementary School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 5. Families can join the event for a day filled with fun activities, food, giveaways, community spirit and much more. It’s the perfect way to start the summer and learn about the nutritious meals available to all children. Visit for more information.
