Bringing healthy summer meals to our children ensures kids have a healthy vacation and return to school ready to learn.
Calhoun County ISD will connect children 18 and younger and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old with healthy, no cost meals this summer.
The Seamless Summer Option food service program is a U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition program administered in the Lone Star State by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).
For the children who rely on school meals during the academic year, these meals offer a source of good nutrition when school is out for the long summer vacation.
“All of our children need good nutrition year-round so they can learn, grow and succeed in life,” said TDA Commissioner Sid Miller. “With nearly two million food insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.”
Meals will only be served Monday through- Thursday starting June 5. The public is welcome to eat, as well. The aAdult meal cost is $3.50, – cash only. Signage will be posted at each campus for entrances for the public.
