Montgomery ISD announced today that for the 2021-2022 school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day, to every student, at no cost.
In a typical year, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. Due to the recently issued guidance by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Montgomery ISD can now offer meals to all students at no cost for the entirety of this school year.
“This is a fabulous opportunity for all MISD families, and we are thrilled that all children can receive healthy meals, at no charge, every day,” Montgomery ISD Child Nutrition Director Lena Neugebauer said. “We encourage our families to take advantage of this opportunity to ensure children are provided meals that empower them to flourish in the classroom.”
The traditional Free or Reduced-price Meal Application will not be required to receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. The district will still offer a la carte items and snacks available for purchase.
