This school year has already been a challenging one for parents, students, and teachers, but the Killeen ISD is doing its best to help ease the burden as much as possible.

According to a post on the district's Facebook page, beginning Monday, October 5th, KISD will begin serving free breakfast and lunch to all students at all campuses through Friday, December 18th. The free lunches are being provided using limited funding through USDA waivers as part of the Coronavirus Relief Act.

Meals will be available on school days, not including holidays or weekends. Students will be able to go through the cafeteria line and receive a free meal, but A la carte items will still be available for purchase in the cafeteria.

Virtual Learners will also be able to continue picking up meals from their home campus during designated times. Students can pick up both breakfast and lunch, and pick up locations will remain the same.

The district also mentioned that they will also provide a free meal to ANY child between the ages of 0-18 during this period even if they are not a KISD student. Parents may pick up meals without any required documentation if children are present but if children are not present, proper documentation is required such as an official school letter, student report card, student ID card, attendance records with a student’s names, or a birth certificate.
