Lubbock Region 17 Education Service Center provides technical assistance for TDA’s Summer Food Service Program. This program is designed to provide free, healthy, nutritious meals to children in lower-income areas during the summer when school is not in session. School districts and eligible sponsors may serve as summer feeding sites.
