STISD to serve free meals for community during month of June

South Texas Independent School District (STISD) will serve free breakfast and lunch meals to children 18 years old and younger from our local communities and enrolled students up to 21 years old with disabilities throughout the month of June.

The meals will be served via dine-in only at the cafeterias of four different STISD campuses. Breakfast will be served from 8:00-9:00 a.m., and lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, June 6-30.
