School District To Extend Free Lunch Program
The state has extended its free lunches program until the end of the month of October for school districts affected by Hurricane Harvey, including Pearland ISD and Friendswood ISD. The program provides all students with a free lunch daily until Oct. 31. According to Hocott, the recovery process will take several months for some students and staff. The U.S. Department of Agriculture notified school districts in affected areas that they will be reimbursed through Oct. 31. Originally, reimbursement was only granted to schools through September. This notice was sent out to 22 counties in Texas.
