Department of Agriculture's daily dietary requirements as outlined under the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. HISD offers free breakfast to all students, and lunches are available to qualifying students at no cost or at a substantially reduced rate. Application forms for free or reduced-price meals are available at each school and through Food Services (713-924-2460).
