Nederland Independent School District will serve up good nutrition this summer for children 18 years old and younger with the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) meals at no cost to the child. SFSP is a U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition program administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Meals will be served at the following schools:

  • Breakfast & Lunch – Hillcrest Elementary
  • Breakfast Only – Central Middle
  • Nederland High and Summer Rec/Open Gym Sites

Serving times are posted on the NISD website at www.nederlandisd.org.

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 food program meal sites help children succeed by providing the nourishment they need to return to school in the fall ready to thrive. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
