BCISD to offer meals throughout the summer

This summer, Bay City ISD will connect children 18 and younger and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old with healthy, no-cost summer meals. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) 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 Mildred Hawkins, Director of Child Nutrition for Bay City ISD. “With nearly 2 million food insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.” 

All schools will provide a grab and go lunch Monday-Friday between the hours of 11;30 am - 12:30pm 

JUNE 1ST- JUNE 25TH

Organizations partner with TDA to serve meals in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Eligible sponsoring organizations include schools, faith-based groups, nonprofit summer camps, government agencies and other tax-exempt organizations. All meal sites must be sponsored by an organization that has a contract with TDA. 

Summer meal sites help children succeed by providing the nourishment they need to return to school in the fall ready to thrive.
