Back to School and Back to Normal in the Cafeteria
Irving Independent School District Transitions Back to Application Requirement
for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals At High Schools Only.
Pre-K through 8th Grade Will Still Receive Breakfast and Lunch at NO CHARGE.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Irving ISD must return to the following process:
High Schools ONLY:
Starting on August 1, 2022, Irving ISD will begin distributing letters and applications to the households of High School students about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, online at https://schoolcafe.com/IRVINGISD or in person at the Irving I.S.D. School Meals Application Center at 800 N. O’Connor Road, Irving, Texas 75061. (Located: corner of N. O’Connor Rd. & Union Bower) Office hours Monday- Thursday 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM and Friday 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM.
Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle Schools ONLY:
The Irving Independent School District will continue to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) for the 2022-2023 school year at Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle Schools. All students at these schools, regardless of their ability to pay, will be eligible to receive a free breakfast and lunch, without need for a meal application.
Breakfast is served at no cost to ALL Irving ISD Students.
