Learn More About Our Meal Programs!
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program serves nutritious, low-cost or free lunches to students in public and non-profit private schools in Texas. Lunches must meet federal nutrition guidelines, and are reimbursable to schools based on number of meals served.
The School Breakfast Program (SBP) reimburses the approved meals SWISD serves to our students daily. The SBP also encourages the consumption of domestically produced agricultural commodities and foods. Texas state law requires that a school must participate in the School Breakfast Program if at least 10% of their students are eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals AND meals must be free of charge to students if 80% or more are identified as qualifying for free or reduced-price meals under NSLP income guidelines.
- In Texas, more than 1 in 5 children struggle with hunger.
- When the school year ends, children often lose access to consistent, nutritious school meals.
- The Summer Meals Program ensures more Texas children have enough food for an active, healthy life.
The Summer Meals Program provides meals at no cost to children and teens 18 years old and younger in low-income areas. Participating families do not have to apply, register, or provide identification. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers the program here in Texas.
