Aldine ISD will be offering evening meals to students at all middle and high schools beginning October 5. Secondary schools offer educational and enrichment programs for students after school, which enables the At Risk Evening Meal Program to be provided by Child Nutrition Services Department.

There is no cost to students for the evening meal. The program will operate Monday through Thursday each week during the school year.

A variety of menus will be offered to students containing an entrée, vegetable, fruit, grain and milk. Choices consist of both hot and cold items. All meals are planned by the Child Nutrition Registered Dietitian and meet all required standards of the United States Department of Agriculture.

The school district’s decision to operate the Evening Meal Program provides an educational and nutritional opportunity for students. Academic achievement and good health are beneficial for success.
