Meals for the 2022-2023 School Year
For School Year 2022-2023, Irving Independent School District Will Transition Back to Application Requirement
for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals At High Schools Only.
Pre-K through 8th Grade Will Continue to 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.
Parents can view school meal menus on their SchoolCafe Account.
Healthy Snacks for Purchase
Students can purchase healthy a la carte snacks during lunch. Parents can deposit money into their student's meal account at SchoolCafe for a la carte purchases.
SchoolCafe allows parents to view menus, nutrition and allergen information and purchased food items. Parents can also set perimeters around what food items their students can buy and the frequency of buying those items.
Parents can access their SchoolCafe account through the computer or download the app on a smart device.
