From June 9 through Aug. 15, youth — age 18 and younger — can get a free lunch Monday through Friday at any Irving recreation center.

Irving’s Parks and Recreation Department will kick off the 10-week summer lunch program for the third consecutive year. The program results from a partnership among the City of Irving, Irving Independent School District (ISD), Texas Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Lunch preparation and delivery will be administered by Irving ISD. The healthy meals will complement the city’s summer camp activities at city recreation centers. Lunches will be similar to those served at school during the academic year. The lunch menu will feature both hot and cold meals, and will include one meat, two vegetables/fruit, bread and milk.

Children age 18 and younger are eligible to participate in the free summer lunch program regardless of income. To learn more, visit
