After a heavy experience with COVID-19, the Summer Meal Program was brought back by Richardson ISD to cover 11 district campuses according to a Community Impact article from June 6. They say,
“Richardson ISD is relaunching its summer meal program starting June 6, offering free breakfast and lunch at 11 district campuses.
The program is run by RISD’s Child Nutrition department, which provides nutrition education and manages the district’s free and reduced meal programs.
“The availability of nutritious meals is critically important to children with food insecurities over the summer months,” RISD Executive Director of Communications Tim Clark said. “With schools closed, many students don’t have regular access to breakfast and lunch, and the summer meals program helps fill that gap.”
The Dallas Morning News, in their article from May 31, posted a full list of the entire schedule for each campuses for the duration of the Summer Meal Program.
The program is open to all children and teens under the age of 18 and Richardson ISD emphasized that there are no other qualifications needed to avail the meal. However, they will be mandating that the deals be eaten on-site.
