Eighty-nine percent of Dallas ISD students qualify for free or reduced-price meals at school. After school and in the summer months, this leaves nearly 9 out of 10 students without a regular, nutritious meal each day.
CitySquare’s Child Nutrition program provides free nutritious meals to children after school and during summer. Meals are delivered to community partner sites year-round.
CitySquare’s summer mobile meal program delivers meals to kids in non-traditional sites such as apartment complexes, reaching children whose families face transportation, economic, and other barriers to access traditional food programs. Partnering with CitySquare AmeriCorps to give the children positive role models, we serve and supervise the meal service while engaging the children in activities and games.
