Summer Food Program Starts In Dallas

The Dallas school district’s free summer meals program starts today.

The summer food service program is set up to feed nutritious meals to all Dallas youth 18 and younger through much of the summer, regardless of family income. That’s because, as the district says, hunger doesn’t take a summer break. To eat, just show up.

The Dallas program runs Monday through Friday until August 17th at various parks, recreation centers, churches and other selected Dallas activity centers. You’ll have to call to find the nearest site. The only weekday without meal service will be Wednesday, July 4th , Independence Day.
