Welcome To Nutrition Services!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The 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 affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

 

P-EBT Application Deadline Extended to August 21 

The deadline to apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) has been extended to August 21st. The Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), and Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) request that schools continue their communication efforts to eligible families. P-EBT provides a one-time benefit of up to $285 per eligible child that families can use to purchase food. Eligible families that have children 5-18 years old and received SNAP benefits for March have already received P-EBT benefits. All other eligible families must apply to receive P-EBT benefits.

Thousands of Texas families have already applied for P-EBT during the month of July. However, there are still many more students that are eligible for this program. Extending the deadline to August 21st will help ensure families have time to apply for these benefits.
