Free Summer Meals

Summer Meals Locations

Children need nutritious meals to learn, grow, and thrive—even when school is out. Thanks to federally funded Texas Department of Agriculture meal programs, we provide free breakfast and lunch for students at many schools throughout the summer.

Who qualifies for free summer meals:

  • Students participating in on-site summer programs at eligible schools.

  • Any child in the community younger than 19.

  • Enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old.

How to find free meals this summer:

Beginning June 1, families may use the following tools to find a meal site anywhere in Texas:

  • Call 2-1-1 to speak to a live operator.

  • Visit  www.SummerFood.org  for an interactive site locator map.

  • Text FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304.

How it works: 

Children in the community enjoy free meals regardless of household income and without any registration or identification. To receive a free, healthy meal, children may simply visit the cafeteria at any participating site during designated service times. Children do not have to be enrolled in AISD to receive free summer meals. 
Good to know: All AISD meal sites are closed July 4-8,  click here to view community food resources. Meal sites and times are subject to change.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) pandemic related waivers that allowed for flexibilities in meal service the past two years ended on the last day of the 2021-22 school year. In compliance with USDA pre-pandemic guidelines, summer meals must be served and consumed on-campus during the designated breakfast and lunch times. AISD is not permitted to provide bundled meals (breakfast + lunch), multi-day meal packs, to-go meals, weekend meals, or distribute food from curbside locations.
