Free meals for all Mansfield ISD students will continue for the 2021-22 school year.

Every MISD student is eligible for one free breakfast meal and one free lunch meal every school day through May 26, 2022, the last day of school.

Learners at all Mansfield ISD campuses can access their free meals in the cafeteria serving lines as usual during their designated meal periods. Second meals, additional entrees, sides and snacks will also be available for purchase.

The free meals are federally funded and are being made possible due to waivers placed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to ensure all children have access to nutritious food.

Families that might qualify for the Free and Reduced Price School Meals program are still encouraged to submit an application for the 2021-22 school year because it provides valuable benefits and services to children.

MISD’s Student Nutrition Services has served more the 1 million free meals to the community since March 2020. The staff focuses on serving safe, nutritious and quality meals while encouraging students to develop life-long skills and knowledge to make healthy food choice.
