The Clark County School District announced that it will once again provide nutritious meals to all students through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).

The school year might be over for students in Las Vegas, but many still rely on school for a meal, or two.

According to a Clark County School District media release, the summer school meal service will begin on Tuesday, May 30. All CCSD schools with summer programs including Summer Acceleration, Extended School Year and Secondary Summer School, will offer free breakfast and lunch on days academic instruction occurs on-site. Due to the terms of the Summer Food Service Program, all meals will have to be consumed on-site. There will be no drive-thru meal options available.

Summer meal service dates will be as follows:

  • Summer Acceleration: May 30, 2023 – June 16, 2023
  • Secondary Summer School: May 30, 2023 – June 16, 2023, and June 20, 2023 – July 10, 2023 (No meal service on June 19 and July 4)
  • Extended School Year: June 22, 2023 – July 18, 2023 (No meal service on July 4)

SFSP, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Nevada Department of Agriculture, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.

Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. People over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled, and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.

Over 276,000 students in Nevada are eligible for free and reduced lunch, meaning 60 percent of the Clark County School District’s students would go without food without the program, the Nevada Department of Agriculture said in a news release.

SFSP sites will also provide children access to restrooms and portable water. The full list of schools and service times can be found at and menus can be found online at

School’s out, for summer! But the Clark County School District is still taking care of our students.

Interest In Las Vegas And Rent Is Going Down

Rent is going down in Las Vegas – and so is the amount of people moving to Las Vegas.

Rent in Las Vegas has decreased slightly over the last year, and is lower than the national average, a new report shows.

Rents across the Las Vegas Valley have decreased by 2.2 percent in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year The average rent is now $1,430 a month, according to a report from the Nevada State Apartment Association, which represents rental housing owners in Nevada.

The national average rent is $1,660, according to the report.

The report represents data from 11 submarkets in Clark County. In the first quarter, rents were down in nine of those 11 submarkets. The submarket with the lowest rent was south outlying Clark County, where the average rent was $910, while the most expensive was west outlying Clark County, where the average rent was $2,357.

The drop in rents in Las Vegas was attributed to the new multifamily housing stock, and lower demand for multifamily housing, since the pace of people moving to Las Vegas has slowed, according to Robin Lee, the executive director of the NVSAA.

Lee told KTNV news, “while there will continue to be fluctuations in availability and price, it is clear that residents have plenty of options in great multifamily properties, which are vital to any community.”

The report showed there is a 9.6 percent vacancy rate for multifamily units, which is above the historical average of 7.8 percent. The vacancy rate has more than doubled since 2021 when it was 4 percent and NVSAA projects that vacancy rates could reach 11 percent by the end of 2023. Increased vacancy rates are due to tenants looking for lower rents, moving in with family or friends, relocating to more affordable markets and evictions in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately, in the past year, there have been at least 58,500 evictions filed in Clark County, which is about 160 percent of the average during pre-pandemic years.

Available rental inventory should increase in Las Vegas. The NVSAA reports there are at least 26 multifamily developments in progress in Las Vegas that are projected to finish development by early 2024. With the addition of these developments, which will bring about 8,300 units to the Las Vegas market, the multifamily housing inventory level will increase by 4.6 percent by early 2024.
