Breakfast and/or Lunch Offered at No Cost
Summer meals will consist of a hot meal for breakfast and/or lunch which will be served in the designated schools cafeterias only. There are no take home meals this year. Parents are welcome to purchase a meal and eat with their student.
“Any child under the age of 18 can obtain a free meal. They do not need to be a Katy ISD student," says Nutrition & Food Service Executive Director Donna Pittenger.
Currently enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years can also receive the meals.
ID is Not Required
Children must be present to receive a meal and identification is not required. There is no need to apply, make reservations, or qualify for these meals.
Free meals during the school year are no longer offered. Families meeting a certain economic status can apply for assistance. Learn more online.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, eating a well-balanced diet promotes proper growth and appropriate development in children. It also is known to prevent various health conditions.
