Jacksonville ISD Summer Food Program Ready to Serve Children

May 12 – The Texas Department of Agriculture’s summer feeding program is offered nationwide by local sponsors who operate locations where free meals are available for children under 18 years of age. The service is open to all children regardless of income. People over the age of 18 participating in school programs for people with disabilities can also receive free meals.

Also this summer, many of the locations that serve free meals are sponsored by school districts, local government agencies, churches, and other private nonprofit groups. The locations are in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or discounted meals under the National School Lunch Program.

More than 2,000 summer dishes are expected to be in service across Texas at recreation centers, schools, parks, churches, day camps, and community centers. Many of the locations offer free recreational activities for children as well as meals.

Jacksonville ISD will be serving meals in the following locations:
