Child Nutrition Services Office

The Los Fresnos CISD Child Nutrition Services Office operates under the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).

Los Fresnos CISD Child Nutrition Services staff carefully analyzes menus to ensure that one-fourth of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) are met for breakfast, and one-third are met for lunch.

Students can expect a menu that is balanced and healthy, and offers a variety of foods for differing tastes. An assortment of salads as well as fresh fruit and whole grains are a few of the options for health conscious students.

Special Assistance Provision 2 Program
The School Nutrition Program is a federally funded program and self-sustaining operation. Therefore, local money such as property and school taxes does not fund the school nutrition program. All students are welcome to participate in the programs, which are free of charge through the Special Assistance Provision 2 Program. 

Student meals are subsidized by USDA commodities and state reimbursements. The state does not allow Teacher/Adult/Visitor meals receive such reimbursements; therefore, the price is slightly higher.

This option is available to districts with an economic profile such as the Los Fresnos CISD. The option enables Los Fresnos CISD students one breakfast and one lunch meal per day free of charge. 

Under the terms of the agreements; the district agrees to serve meals that meet specific requirements:

  • Meals must be provided to all children without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability
  • Agree to accept and use USDA Commodities
  • Operate on a nonprofit basis
  • Meet Nutritional Requirements
