All Dallas ISD students will now get free breakfast and lunch

Every Dallas ISD student will be able to eat meals at school for free, the district announced Tuesday.

The district got approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which manages the free and reduced school meals program, to let all DISD students no longer have to pay. The change is expected to save the district money by eliminating about 40 temporary positions and reducing paperwork.

Its a wonderful benefit, said Dora Rivas, DISDs executive director of food and child nutrition services. Its about paperwork and efficiencies, but I think the biggest winners in this are going to be students.

The new program applies to every student, whether they are from a low-income family or not. It only applies to meals and not snacks and other items. It started Tuesday.
