Richardson ISD Student Meal Services

Any child 18 or under can get free to-go meals from designated RISD schools and apartment complexes. Both a breakfast and a lunch will be provded at the same time so that students only need to make one trip a day to pick up meals. 

Beginning with meal pickups on Monday, April 6, new rules require that parents picking up free meals for children, without the children present, must bring proof of the children that the meals are for. Acceptable proof includes a school-issued student ID, report card, birth certificate, or a district verification message emailed to all RISD parents April 1. Please note that proof is not required when children come with a parent to a meal pickup location. Any child 18 or under can receive meals at a meal pickup location.

Two to-go meals per student will also be available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the following client apartment complexes:

  • Newport Landing Apartments,10850 Walnut Hill, Dallas, TX 75238
