Learning does not end when school lets out. Neither does the need for good nutrition.

RGCCISD announces the sponsorship of the Texas Department of Agriculture's Seamless Summer Option feeding program.  Children between the ages of 1 - 18 years of age are eligible to receive program meals at no charge.  This feeding program was created to ensure that children in low-income areas continue to receive meals during long school vacations when they may have no access to school meals. 

Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. Continuing healthy eating habits is also important during the long hot summer months. Eating nutritious foods helps ensure students retain their hard learned knowledge… and to help them to keep right on learning throughout the summer. For many of these children, summer vacation can bring the temptation of eating empty calorie snacks and foods that are high in sugar, fats and sodium. And for many others, summer exposes students to an increased risk of hunger and developmental decline. Make seasonal fruits and vegetables a high priority for your snacks, meals and anytime.

Summertime is a time to play hard...but it is also a time to remember to eat right. Make sure good nutrition remains a priority all summer long, and students will return to school in the Fall healthy, sharp and ready to learn.
