Welcome to Child Nutrition Services!



Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Child Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of Food and Nutrition Professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet State and Federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of nutritious and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

"Score big with a healthy Texas lunch"

The goal of Child Nutrition Services is to provide students, faculty and staff with nutritious, appetizing, quality meals that are prepared and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.
