Free Summer Food Service Program - Kids Eat Free This Summer

Free summer meals offered at many schools in and around Austin

Many children in and around Austin participate in the free or reduced meals programs at their school. When school is over for the summer it can be an expensive time for many families.

Fortunately, many schools and organizations in and around Austin offer a Summer Food Service Program where children age 18 and under can visit a summer meal site throughout the summer while school is out of session to receive free meals, snacks and participate in fun activities.

Central Texas Food Bank


In partnership with the Texas Department of Agriculture, the Central Texas Food Bank is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. Children ages 18 and younger can get free, nutritious lunches at many participating sites across Central Texas.

Austin ISD


Through the Summer Food Service Program, Austin ISD will continue to serve free breakfast and lunch to local children and teens ages 18 and younger, regardless of economic status and whether or not the child attends AISD. Participants enjoy meals without any registration or identification requirements.

Curbside meals will be offered at more than 15 sites. Austin ISD school buses will deliver meals throughout the community at more than 50 locations
