Taco Cabana offering free lunch to kids throughout the summer

Taco Cabana is offering kids a free lunch, including a bean and cheese taco, chips and queso and a drink, at all Texas locations through the end of summer. The program is available to kids 12 and under, every weekday from 11 a.m. to noon. The offer is available at the drive-thru only, and no purchase is necessary.

Network of Community Ministries' Food Pantry adds Saturday service

Beginning May 9th, the Network of Community Ministries’ food pantry will be open each Saturday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. This is in addition to weekly hours of Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon.

Food will be distributed by way of a “drive through/car pick-up” process only in the rear of the Network's building at 741 S. Sherman St., Richardson. Families must show proof of residence within RISD zip code areas.

Families can also now receive food from the Network as often as one time per week, if needed.

 

RISD MEAL SERVICE SCHEDULE - updated July 5

  • Meal services will continue through July, per the schedule shown below.
  • Meal distribution hours on designated days are now 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m

To reduce the health risk to staff preparing and serving meals, as well as parents and students picking up meals, RISD meal service sites are now operating three days a week, while still serving enough meals to feed students Monday through Friday.

  • Monday: No meals will be served at any of the designated sites.
  • Tuesday: All sites will be serving meals. Meals will be provided for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Wednesday: No meals will be served at any of the designated sites.
  • Thursday: All sites will be serving meals.
  • Friday: All sites will be serving meals. Meals will be provided for both Friday and the following Monday. Weekend boxes will also be available.

In addition to the meals being provided by RISD, district partner Be a Champion also provides supper and a snack to children.

Any child 18 or under can get free to-go meals from designated RISD schools and apartment complexes. Unless otherwise indicated, both a breakfast and a lunch will be provided at the same time so that students only need to make one trip a day to pick up meals.

The Texas Department of Agriculture now requires that parents picking up free meals for children, without the children present, must bring proof of the children that the meals are for.

Acceptable proof includes a school-issued student ID, report card, birth certificate, or a district verification message emailed to all RISD parents April 1. Please note that proof is not required when children come with a parent to a meal pickup location. Any child 18 or under can receive meals at a meal pickup location.

Children not enrolled in RISD can be provided meals, but documentation for each child must be provided for any child not present. This can be the child’s birth certificate, a report card or a school ID (from a different school district).
