82 AISD schools will give kids free breakfast and lunch

Friday, August 9, 2019 by Tai Moses

For the 2019-20 school year, the Austin school district is bumping up the number of schools participating in the national school lunch and breakfast program from 43 to 82 campuses. The free meals are given at no cost to qualifying students. All families at the participating schools will be encouraged to complete a meal benefits application to determine if their kids are eligible for the program. “By providing complimentary breakfast and lunch to all students at eligible schools, we are ensuring that every child has the opportunity to come to class well-nourished and ready to learn,” AISD Food Services and Warehouse Operations Executive Director Anneliese Tanner said in a press release. More information about the meals program can be found here.
