Starting on Tuesday, Sept. 15, all STISD students and children 18 years old and younger from our local communities will again be able to pick up free breakfast and lunch meals curbside.
Both meals will be served together via grab-and-go meal pick-up Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at four different STISD campus pick-up locations.
