The Laredo Independent School District will be offering a free food program during the summer, beginning June 6, for all children and youth under the age of 18. There are no requirements or registration involved. According to Texas Commissioner of Agriculture Todd Staples, “The food is served to all regardless of economic status and even includes students with disabilities over 18 who are enrolled in the school nutrition program.” Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be offered Monday through Thursday in 62 locations, including schools, county recreation centers, libraries, housing, churches and other community settings.
