AUSTIN (KXAN) — Students who take part in free or reduced lunch programs during the school year can still get the service during the summer.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children at approved summer food service program locations. To find one in your area, call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or check the map on the Texas Department of Agriculture’s website.

You do not have to enroll and any child 18 and under is eligible.

The Central Austin Food Bank and the Austin Independent School District also have a plan to feed children during the summer. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
