HOUSTON — School's out and, sadly, for some kids that means they're going hungry — but there's hope because HISD is starting its summer meals program this week at nearly 200 district schools. Free breakfast and lunch will be served for kids from ages 1-18.
“They don't have to be HISD students, general public can come in and get a meal, and then their parents, any adults with them can get breakfast for $2.25 or lunch for $3.75,” said Maggie Kennedy, spokesperson for HISD.
No proof of income or registration is required. The district says every neighborhood is accounted for so call the campus closest to you to find out serving times. The program runs through Aug. 2.

That's not the only free meal program this summer. Spring ISD has 13 campuses open and serving, and outside of schools, the Houston Food Bank is bringing meals right to your neighborhood.
