Most students are enjoying their summer break, but a growing number find the summer months challenging because they have lost their opportunity to have regular meals.
However, school districts and community groups are working to ensure children do not go hungry.
Beginning June 14, Garland ISD offers free meals twice daily throughout most of the summer at certain campuses, including Sachse High School. Breakfast lasts from 7:30-8 a.m. and lunch lasts from 11:50 a.m.-12:20 p.m.
Students must be accompanied by either an adult or an older sibling to receive meals.
A complete list of participating schools can be found at garlandisd.net/content/summer-meals.
Elementary schools will serve breakfast from 8:10-8:40 a.m. and lunch from 12:30-1 p.m. while middle schools will serve breakfast from 8:50-9:20 a.m. and lunch from 1:10-1:40 p.m.
