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.
