The number of meals served to youth by Dallas ISD Food and Child Nutrition Services staff during Thanksgiving break nearly tripled this year.
Break Meals, a district program designed to help ensure students have access to healthy, delicious meals when schools are not in session, were served at 34 schools Nov. 19-23. The number of meals represents a 260 percent increase over the previous year.
Meals will also be offered during Winter Break, 8-9 a.m. and 11 a.m.-noon Dec. 21, Dec. 26-28 and Jan. 2-4 at designated schools. Break Meals are free to all children participating in an educational or enrichment activity and are served to children ages 18 and under.
