|| Our Commitment to Nutrition NISD’s Food Service department is committed to the health and well-being of our students by offering nutritious meals. A well-balanced breakfast and lunch plays a vital role in each child’s success. We believe in providing a best in class food and nutrition program by creating an environment that helps students flourish.
The department follows Food Base Menu Planning. All meals must meet the Recommended Daily Allowance established by the USDA and the Texas Department of Agriculture. We research and evaluate every recipe in our menu to ensure they meet nutrition requirements measured by the following categories: Saturated Fat, Total Fat, Calories and Sodium. For further details on the Texas Public School Nutrition Policy please refer to the full policy at www.squaremeals.org.

(Free & Reduced Program)
Meal Sense helps parents and guardians obtain nutritionally balanced, free or reduced-price school meals for their children through the National School Lunch Program. At any time during the school year, you may apply for your child to receive free or reduced rate breakfasts and lunches. Applications may be completed online or hard copy applications are available at each school office or at the Food Service office.
A new application must be completed each school year. If your child received free/reduced priced meals last year, he/she will automatically receive the meal benefits for the first 30 days of school. After the 30 day grace period, only students who submitted a new application for the current school year and qualified for the program will receive benefits.
