Summer & Afterschool Meal Programs

There are 2.8 million Texas students that qualify to receive free or reduced-price meals breakfast and lunch at school. Unfortunately, these students often go without consistent meals after school and during the summer break. The Afterschool Meals Program and the Summer Meals Program are resources that provide access to free meals for children (18 and under). THI has the knowledge and experience to help you successfully start a meal site or increase participation at an existing site. We also work closely with the state and federal agencies that administer the Afterschool and Summer Meals Programs to ensure they are run efficiently and with input from local organizations with day-to-day experience with the programs.
