Lunch is served … breakfast, too

With summer here, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. Diboll ISD provides free meals to children during the summer.
This summer, meals are served Monday through Friday through Aug. 2 at H.G. Temple Elementary School, 1303 Lumberjack Drive, with breakfast being served from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and  lunch  served from 11 a.m. until noon. They will not serve July 4.
To get their day started there are offerings such as are breakfast pizza and breakfast tacos, and lunch faire could be anywhere from chicken nuggets to fajitas.
There are no income requirements or registration. Any child 18 and under may participate. For more information, contact Kerri Sanford at 936-829-6262.
The program is serving between 200 and 250 meals a day, including those being delivered  to the Boys & Girls Club and the Diboll Housing Authority.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Diboll ISD to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. For more information about the national Summer Food Service Program, visit
