GARLAND,TX. (August 18, 2015) Believing that proper nutrition plays an important role in education, Garland ISD will offer free and reduced-price meals to eligible students during the 2015-16 school year.
The district participates in National School Breakfast and Lunch programs, which provide federal funding to cover the cost of discounted meals offered to families unable to pay full price. To qualify, a student must meet certain household size and parent-income requirements. Guidelines for 2015-16 are available on the Student Nutrition Services web page.
Free and reduced-price meal application forms will be printed in both English and Spanish and sent to the homes of district families. To apply, an adult household member can complete the form and return it to their child’s campus. Applications can also be completed online. Only one application is needed per household, listing all students that attend GISD schools.
New applications are required every school year and can be submitted at any time. All information is confidential. Additional copies of the form will be available in the office of each campus as well as Food Services, located at 701 N.First St.
