Nederland ISD is one of the nonprofit organizations partnering to serve meals. Families are encouraged to use these tools to find a meal site any where in the state:

 Call 2-1-1 to speak to a live operator

 Visit SummerFood.org for an interactive site locator map

 Text FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304

Organizations partner 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 succeed by providing the nourishment they need to return to school in the fall ready to thrive.
