NBISD summer feeding program June 4- June 27
05/23/2019

This summer, New Braunfels ISD will connect with children 18 years old and younger with healthy Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) meals at no cost to the child. SFSP is a U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition program administered in the Lone Star State by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). For the Children who rely on school meals during the academic year, these meals offer a source of good nutrition when school is out for the long summer vacation.


“New Braunfels children need good nutrition year-round so they can learn, grown and succeed in life,” said Catherine Vanderbrook, Child Nutrition Director of NBISD. “With nearly 2 million food insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.”


Starting on June 4, Breakfast and lunch will be served Monday through Thursday at the following locations: Carl Schurz Elementary located at 633 West Coll Street and New Braunfels 9th Grade Center located at 659 S. Gunther Avenue. Breakfast will be served from 7:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. and lunch from 11:00 a.m.  – 12:30 p.m.


New Braunfels ISD is one of the nonprofit organizations partnering with TDA to serve meals across Texas. Families are encouraged to use these three tools to find a meal site anywhere in the state:

 

  • Call 2-1-1 to speak to a live operator

  • Text FOODTX to 877-877

 

Organizations partner with TDA to serve meals in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Eligible sponsoring organizations include schools, faith-based groups, nonprofit summer camps, government agencies and other tax-exempt organizations. All meal sites must be sponsored by an organization that has a contract with TDA.
