In partnership and cooperation with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), the Texas Education Agency is pleased to support the announcement of the Summer Meals Program.

The Summer Meals Program connects youth ages 18 and younger to healthy and nutritious meals while school is out of session. As a leader in your community, you play a critical role in helping increase awareness of the summer meals program and ensuring youth have access to healthy nutritious meals.

The TDA has developed no cost online resources and print materials for schools, food sponsors, elected officials and community members to use as promotional items to create program awareness.

Please visit SquareMeals.org to learn more about the Summer Program and find downloadable materials to use on social media platforms. For print materials, please visit https://www.jotform.com/81194603709156/ to submit a request.

For more information, please contact Jennifer Page, Coordinator of Special Programs, TDA, jennifer.page@texasagriculture.gov, 512-463-7590 or 888-237-4998.

Thank you for supporting the promotion of summer meals programs to our children and their families in your community.

Sincerely,

Harold L. Wright
