Giddings ISD will continue to serve meals at no charge to children 18 and under through the 2020-2021 school year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Seamless Summer Option of the National School Lunch Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through June 30, 2021. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.

Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

Curbside meals will be provided, on a first come, first served basis at Giddings High School from 8:45-10:30 AM on Mondays for that week.
