Local daycare centers, churches, and other organizations can also arrange for breakfast and lunch, and should contact the CCISD Child Nutrition office at (254) 547-1227 .
All meals must be eaten on site and no curbside pickups are available, due to the expiration
of USDA waivers.
CCISD participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Any school district that has more than 50 percent of its students on the free and reduced lunch plan must offer a summer feeding program as well. The Texas Department of Agriculture reimburses the district for each kid’s meal.
