Welcome to LJISD Child Nutrition Services!
Dear La Joya ISD Families,
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The goal of the La Joya ISD 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.
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.
La Joya ISD school cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Continue to encourage your kids to choose school breakfast and school lunch!
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on portion size. School breakfast & school lunches will meet additional standards requiring:
√ Age-appropriate calorie limits
School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! La Joya ISD participates under a special Provision, (CEP) Community Eligibility Provision, that allows the District to provide Breakfast and Lunch at no cost to the student.
"Score big with a healthy Texas lunch"
Thank you for a successful 2019 Free Summer Meal Program! Free Summer Meals On-Site
