Montgomery ISD will offer no-cost meals to students in the upcoming school year due to recently issued guidance by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, according to a July 29 news release.

In a typical year, a student's household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. The traditional Free or Reduced-Price Meal Application will not be required to receive breakfast or lunch in the 2021-22 school year.

"This is a fabulous opportunity for all MISD families, and we are thrilled that all children can receive healthy meals, at no charge, every day," MISD Child Nutrition Director Lena Neugebauer said.

The district will still offer a la carte items and snacks for purchase.
