Quote of note

“Austin children need good nutrition year-round so they can learn, grow and succeed in life,” said Ryan Mikolaycik, Austin ISD executive director of food service and warehouse operations, in a news release on May 31. “With nearly two million food-insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.”
