Killeen ISD will begin serving free breakfast and lunch to all students at all campuses on Monday, October 5th through Friday, December 18th, 2020. The limited funding is available through USDA waivers, as part of the Coronavirus Relief Act.
Meals will be available on traditional school days, not including holidays or weekends. Students will be able to go through the cafeteria line and receive the free meal. A la carte items will still be available for purchase in the cafeteria.
Virtual Learners will be able to continue picking up meals from their home campus during designated times. Students can pick up both breakfast and lunch and pick up locations will remain the same.
In addition to KISD students, the waiver allows the district to provide a free meal to any child between the ages of 0-18.
Parents may pick up meals without any required documentation if children are present. If children are not present, proper documentation is required. The following are acceptable forms of documentation: an official school letter, student report card, student ID card, attendance records with a student’s names or a birth certificate.
In the event the waiver is discontinued by the USDA, before December 18, KISD will notify parents of any changes.
Upon the return of instruction in January 2021, normal meal prices will resume.
