Child Nutrition

  • Mission Statement

    To contribute to the well-being of every student by providing nutritious, appealing meals in order for each student to learn and perform at the highest level.

    CHISD Student Nutrition Services provides breakfast and lunch in all schools at no cost to the student.  In addition, parents may utilize the online meal payment system to pre-pay their children's meals. Healthy food choices are offered in coordination with the Texas State Public Schools Nutrition Policy, which regulates nutrients in food items (reducing fat, sugar and salt content). Our team is dedicated to providing quality meals to students, staff, and visitors, and support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition practices.
