June 6, 2018 – Killeen ISD will do its part to keep area children from going hungry this summer while regular classes are out. Starting today and lasting through Aug.10, KISD will serve about 3,200 free meals a day to children at sites all over the school district.
Part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s summer feeding program, the Killeen ISD initiative will offer free breakfast and lunch to any child who comes to KISD’s door June 6 through August 10.
Children do not need to be enrolled in Killeen ISD to eat for free. Any young person who appears to be older than 18 may be asked to show identification as proof of age, but otherwise children can eat breakfast and lunch for free at any KISD meal location.
Killeen ISD is increasing the number of meals and serving locations this summer compared with the previous year. Last year KISD had 41 meal sites and averaged providing 1,005 free breakfasts and 1,793 free lunches every day throughout the summer.
This year the school district expects to serve 1,200 free breakfasts and 2,000 free lunches a day at 42 locations around the area and may increase the number of serving locations to 45 to 50 before the end of the summer.
