The Summer Food Service Program will return this year and provide free meals to all children age 18 and younger.  These meals provide essential nutrients for active growing kids. Children need good nutrition year-round so they can learn, grow, and succeed in life. With nearly 2 million food-insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.

The district's Summer Food Service Program is made possible by a federally funded, state-administered program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Program sponsors provide free meals to children at a central site and are reimbursed for the meals they serve through the USDA. This will be GCISD's 16th year to participate in the program.

To participate in the free meal program, children 18 and younger must be present at one of our serving sites. Service is every Wednesday, June 3, 2020, through August 5, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the following locations:

Grapevine Elementary School
(Meals served from main entrance loop off Hall-Johnson Rd.)
1801 Hall Johnson Rd.
Grapevine, TX 76051

Timberline Elementary School
3220 Timberline Dr.
Grapevine, TX 76051

Grapevine Middle School
301 Pony Pkwy.
Grapevine, TX 76051

Using curbside service, GCISD is providing 7 days of breakfast and lunch meals. The District is using the “offer vs. serve” meal pattern, which means students can decline any item offered. Please be prepared to open your trunk so that staff can place your meals in your vehicle. Menus will be available on our website

In addition, mobile meals (click to view locations and times) will be provided every Wednesday June 3, 2020, through August 5, 2020, from 11 a.m to noon. 

Please continue to check our website for updated information throughout the summer. Please email child.nutrition@gcisd.net or call the GCISD Nutrition Services Department at 817-251-5618 if you have questions or need additional information.
