    HISD Announces Free Meals for All Children & New Socioeconomic Information Form 

    The Huntsville Independent School District announces that during the 2021-2022 school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to ALL students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) along with the Texas Agricultural Agency (TDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for this 2021-2022 school year.

    The Standard (Multi-Child) Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals application or eligibility determination will NOT be required for students to receive free meals this school year but Huntsville ISD does request that every parent/guardian submit a brief 2021-2022 Socioeconomic Information Form instead for each child they have attending Huntsville ISD schools. 

    The District is required to collect and report the socioeconomic status of each student to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for purposes of the annual accountability ratings and for federal funds.  The monies received from the federal government is what funds many of the special programs and valuable resources in our schools such as Title I and other federal mandates; therefore, it is essential that a completed form be received for each student as soon as possible.

    Parents/Guardians, please fill out the 2021-2022 Socioeconomic Information Form using paper forms or online.  The ONLINE option is available using the button/link below.  Submitting the online form is secure, quick and easy with information going directly to the Child Nutrition Services office.  Please be sure to submit a separate form for each child you have enrolled in Huntsville ISD.

    If you prefer to submit a paper form for each child, English and Spanish forms can be obtained and/or returned to any HISD campus or by visiting the HISD Child Nutrition Services offices at 1010 7th Street, Huntsville, TX  77320. 

    For questions regarding HISD school meals, please call Child Nutrition Services at 936-435-6920.

    UPDATE:  August 2021

    The Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) helped millions of Texas children who temporarily lost access to free school meals during the 2020-2021 school year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently added a one-time summer P-EBT summer benefit. Eligible families may be able to receive an additional $375 to supplement their family’s budget during the covered summer period.

    Families that submit a household application before August 28 and meet one of the following criteria may receive the $375 Summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) through a direct distribution from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).
    • Are newly eligible for P-EBT based on a change in family income after June 30, 2021 or are income eligible and did not have a household application on file during the 2020-2021 school year.
       
    • Have not yet applied for P-EBT and have children who were certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and enrolled in an NSLP school in the last month of the 2020-2021 school year. Note: These families must submit applications through MyTexasBenefits.
