Leander ISD will not be providing free breakfasts and lunches at its free food drive-thrus on Memorial Day.

However, LISD will continue to operate the free food drive-thrus through July 31 at three of the four campuses currently distributing the food.


Running Brushy Middle School, as well as Reed and River Place Elementary schools, will hold free food drive-thrus over the summer, but Bagdad will suspend its service, according to LISD spokesperson Matt Mitchell.

The free meal pickups will take place from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on weekdays at the following locations.

  • Reed Elementary School, 1515 Little Elm Trail, Cedar Park

  • River Place Elementary School, 6500 Sitio Del Rio Blvd., Austin

  • Running Brushy Middle School, 2303 Lakeline Blvd., Austin.


LISD Child Nutrition Services employees will distribute bagged lunches for that day and bagged breakfasts for the following day, according to LISD.

The last day of school is May 29.
