Free Student Summer Meals June 1 - July 27

summer meals

Gainesville ISD is proud to announce our participation in the Summer Food Service Program! For many kids, summertime means food, friends and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budgets have to be stretched even further.

We have good news! This summer, for the first time, the new Gainesville ISD Food Truck will be utilized to reach more kids across our community. The Food Truck will be making stops at five different sites during June and July. Summer meals are free and are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger. There’s no paperwork to fill out – just visit one of our sites during meal time and your child or teen can receive a fresh, nutritious, delicious meal for free. You don’t need to be in school or even live in the community where the meal is served.

You can also visit  https://gainesvilleisd.nutrislice.com/menu/ for our summer menus and locations OR download the Nutrislice app for free from your smartphone app store!

*Meals must be consumed on-site.  There will be no meal service from July 4-5.*
