HOUSTON – Houston Independent School District officials have offered students three free meals per day as the area continues to recover from Hurricane Harvey, KRTK reported.
The students will receive the meal for the rest of the 2017-2018 school year as part of the National School Lunch/Breakfast Program, KTRK reported.
The district announced Wednesday that all HISD students will receive three free meals per day for the 2017-2018 school year as part of the National School Lunch/Breakfast Program. The approval came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture to waive the required application process, USA Today reported.
“This waiver will give our families one less concern as they begin the process of restoring their lives,” HISD Superintendent Richard Carranza told KTRK. “It will also provide a sense of normalcy by allowing students to have access to up to three nutritious meals each and every school day.”
