Austin, Round Rock and Pflugerville ISDs offer free meals for children during June, July and August.

Austin, Pflugerville and Round Rock ISDs are offering free meals to children younger than 18 to ensure students have access to nutritious food when school is out of session.

RRISD’s Seamless Summer Option provides free, nutritious meals to children and students in the Round Rock community throughout the summer months. Children ages 1-18 and adults older than 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public education agency to be mentally or physically disabled are eligible to receive free meals.

AISD’s Summer Food Service Program offers free breakfast and lunch to children and teens age 18 and younger, regardless of economic status or whether the child attends AISD. The Summer Food Service Program is available at more than 30 AISD schools.

PfISD is also offering free community lunches to children through the U.S. Department of Agriculture summer meals program. Meals are provided at no charge to individual children at select PfISD campuses during June, July and August.

Children do not need to register or apply to receive a free meal from any of the programs. For more information, visit www.squaremeals.org.
