Local school districts to offer free meals over the summer

ECISD, EISD, NEISD, NISD, SAISD, SSISD, SWISD & Idea Public Schools participate

SAN ANTONIO – Thousands of San Antonio children rely on free breakfast and lunch programs at school. For some, it may be the only nutrition they receive in a day.

There are several federally funded programs that ensure that free breakfasts and lunches continue to be offered over the summer. The Seamless Summer Nutrition Program is required by law in districts with a large demographic of "free" eligible students.
