Quality – Service - Accountability
The Nutrition Services Department is guided by three core values:
Our stakeholders include students, parents, employees, school staff, and taxpayers. These stakeholders deserve a quality nutrition services experience with excellent service that maintains accountability. We will deliver that experience.
The Nutrition Services Department is one of the largest support services departments in the District with over 1,200 employees. Our staff prepares and serves over 113,000 breakfasts and lunches daily, a total of about 20 million meals per year, at all 89 of our campuses.
In addition to our 89 campuses, our department operates a 50,000 square foot central production facility where food is sent out to the schools to prepare meals each day. Our production center prepares menu items such as chili, spaghetti sauce and taco meat from scratch, and bakes fresh whole grain rolls, cinnamon rolls and kolaches.
The Nutrition Services Department operates under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. These programs are administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) at the state level. All of our food and beverages served meet strict federal guidelines from the USDA and TDA. We employee several registered dietitians, food and nutrition professionals and staff that help ensure our meals meet these guidelines.
We are self-funded and do not receive funds from local property taxes. We receive federal reimbursement and earn revenue to paying for all of our departmental expenses.
We are PowerUp Café!
