2023-2024 Meal Prices

The budget approved by the 88th Texas Legislature includes funding that lets students who are approved to get reduced-price meals get
breakfast free. Students that meet income requirements for
reduced price meals will be offered breakfast at
no charge.

If you feel that your household may qualify for no-cost or reduced-price meals, we encourage you to complete a household application either online at School Cafe or download the School Café app for free. If your household qualifies for meal assistance, that assistance will begin immediately upon processing the application.

Parents are encouraged to put funds on the student account prior to meal service. Payments can be made at each campus cafeteria with cash or check. Also, payments can be made online at School Cafe. At School Cafe, parents can set up balance reminders to be sent to an e-mail address so there are always funds available for meal purchases. Students with negative balances cannot purchase ala carte snacks or extras.

Meal Charge Policy

We believe that every child should have a nutritious, well-balanced breakfast and lunch available daily. School meals are designed to meet federal guidelines for the nutritional and caloric intake of growing children while restricting fat and sodium. Menus are posted on the district website along with nutritional information. Milk and water are available to all students at each meal.

Once student funds have been exhausted, students may charge meals up to the equivalent of three breakfasts and three lunches. An automated phone call will occur when students reach a negative balance on their account and daily until a negative balance is resolved. If a student’s account exhausts the grace period/ charge limit, the student will receive a “value meal” consisting of an entrée of choice and milk at breakfast and lunch. Ala carte items are not available for charging.
