College Station Independent School District has announced a program to feed children free of cost for the summer.

According to the CSISD website, “The Summer Feeding Program was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive meals during long school vacations when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast.”

Under the Summer Feeding Program, an adult can purchase a meal for $3.75, but all a child would have to do is show up at one of the locations to receive a free meal. No catches. No gimmicks. It is as simple as that.

The program is offered at two locations in College Station. The Lincoln Center on Eleanor Street and College Hills Elementary on Williams Street. Call the CSISD Child Nutrition Office at 979-764-5450 for more information.
