Natalia ISD to serve up good nutrition for local children this summer

Bringing healthy summer meals to Natalia children ensures kids have a healthy vacation and return o school ready to learn.

This summer, Natalia ISD will connect children 18 and younger and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old with healthy, no cost summer meals. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition program administered in the Lone Star State by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). For the children we rely on school meals during the academic year, these meals offer a source of good nutrition when school is out for the long summer vacation.
“Natalia children need good nutrition year-round so they can learn, grow and succeed in life,” said Sobeida Laque, Jr. High Manager. “With nearly 2 million food insecure children living in Texas, these healthy meals are vital to nourishing young Texans during the summer vacation.”
Natalia Jr. High Cafeteria will be serving breakfast 7:30 am to 8:30 am and lunch 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, Monday through Thursday. Come and join us for a good meal and a smile.
Natalia ISD is one of the nonprofit organizations partnering with TDA to serve meals across Texas. Families are encouraged to use these three tolls to find a meal site anywhere in the state:
Call 2-1-1 to speak to a live operator
Visit for an interactive site locator map
Text FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304
Organizations partner with TDA to serve meals in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Eligible sponsoring organizations include schools, faith-based groups, nonprofit summer camps, government agencies and other tax-exempt organizations. All meal sites must be sponsored by an organization that has a contract with TDA.
Summer meal sites help children success by providing the nourishment they need to return to school in the fall ready to thrive.
