Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services are committed to providing all students across the district with tasty, healthy food, while sourcing locally and sustainably whenever possible.
Our cafeterias are classrooms where students and staff learn about cultural food ways, the food system, nutrition and life-long healthy habits.
School meals are offered to students through the School Breakfast Program (SBP), National School Lunch Program (NSLP), Child and Adult Care Feeding Program (CACFP) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).
Our menus exceed the nutrition guidelines of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. We offer whole-grain rich products; fat free and low fat milk; 100% fruit juice; and fresh fruits and vegetables. We offer foods with the highest quality ingredients; all menus are free from artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup and trans fats.
