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.



"Katy ISD continues to support families throughout the summer by providing free meals to students throughout the district," says Donna Pittenger, Executive Director of Nutrition and Food Services.
