Child Nutrition

"We Serve Education Everyday!"

 
Starting in August 2018 all students at all campus's will receive Free Breakfast and Lunch due to the CEP, (Community Eligibility Provision) program we were approved for thru TDA. Students can still purchase ala-carte and snack items with cash, check or from money on their account. 
 
MWISD Food Services proudly serves more than 2500 nutritious meals each day, fueling our students' academic performance and inspiring the development of life-long dietary health and wellness behaviors.

We are in partnership with the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.  These programs are tools to provide nutritious, delicious, and complete meals to children. They contribute to a better understanding of good nutrition and better eating habits. 

 

MWISD chooses 3 days per year for student parties. Smart Snack Regulations do not apply for these days. These dates are: the day before winter break, Valentine's Day, and the last day of school.

 

 

 

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Mineral Wells Independent School District Food Services Department is to guarantee high quality food and nutrition programs in every Mineral Wells school through educational support, resources, and advocacy.

 

Nutrition Policy

In 2010, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act was passed. New meal pattern regulations were released by the USDA stating that all students must be served a food-based menu option. The food-based menu planning reflects these guidelines so that our students can choose a meal at breakfast or lunch that can include healthy choices from each of the five food categories: protein, grains, fruit, vegetables and milk. 

Since 2014-2015 Smart Snacks Regulations have been in effect. This guarantees that all food sold in any MWISD school during the school day will meet healthier standards.  

In addition, the new meal pattern will address 4 specific nutrients: calories, sodium, saturated fat and trans-fat.
