How kids can eat for free at AISD

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 by Tai Moses

Families with students in the Austin Independent School District will be receiving letters, sent out starting Aug. 20, informing them about eligibility benefits for the district’s free and reduced-price meal program. All households are encouraged to complete the meal benefits application to determine whether their child is eligible for free or reduced-price meals, based on household income. The district also uses the information collected to help determine each school’s funding needs. If you do not receive a letter, you can pick up an application from Austin ISD Nutrition and Food Services at 3701 Woodbury Dr. or at any school office. Applications can also be complete electronically here. Find details about the income eligibility guidelines here.
