[ARCHIVED] Summer Meal Program Providing Free Food to Children

Summer Meal Program 2021

When the school year ends, many children lose access to consistent healthy meals. Children need nutritious meals to learn, grow, and thrive — even when school is out. The Summer Meal Program provides children and teens with FREE nutritious meals throughout the summer. Participating families do not have to apply, register, or provide identification. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds the Summer Meal Program, and the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers it in Texas.

Benbrook Meal Site

The Boston Heights Apartments site, located at 3510 Boston Ave., will be serving grab-and-go meals to children ages 18 and younger, and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old. This site will be offering breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday, beginning June 18. The program will continue through August 13. Breakfast will be served from 10 to 11 a.m., and lunch will be served 1 to 2 p.m.
