Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Gregory-Portland ISD announced today it will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) under the National School Lunch (NSLP) and School Breakfast Programs (SBP) for the 2021-2022 School Year. Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve one breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge eliminating the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and help ensure that students receive nutritious meals. This will be the last year Gregory-Portland ISD operates the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). A-La-Carte items as well as second servings will be available for A-La-Carte prices at all grade levels

If you need more information, please contact us at the food service office.   361.777.1098

Sincerely,

Jeff Atkinson

MISSION STATEMENT
Assist student achievement through nutrition.

OUR VISION
Quality – Service - Accountability
The Nutrition Services Department is guided by three values:
1. We will provide a quality dining experience with a variety of nutritious options. Each menu item will be properly prepared and served in an appealing fashion. All menu items will be evaluated for nutritional content, taste, customer preference, regulatory compliance and financial affordability.
2. Customer service will be a priority at all of our facilities. Everyone will be greeted with a smile and treated with respect.
3. Accountability will be demonstrated by:
Our stakeholders include students, parents, employees, school staff, and taxpayers. These stakeholders deserve a quality nutrition services experience with excellent service that maintains accountability. We will deliver that experience.

CORE BELIEFS

We believe all students should have access to meals that will furnish the nourishment required for optimal growth, development, and academic success.

We believe open lines of communication should be maintained between Food and Nutrition Services, students, parents, staff, and community.

We believe financial responsibility should continue to be practiced by Food and Nutrition Services.

We believe in providing a fun and exciting, safe and secure environment in modern, well-maintained facilities.

We believe all decisions should be based on the best interest of the students of our district.

We believe G-PISD Food and Nutrition Services is one of the top programs in the state of Texas.
