Student Meal Pricing Information - Posted January 28, 2022

Please CLICK HERE, or scroll below, to review student meal pricing information and estimated costs for what families WOULD have been paying for meals during the last five years under federal funding provision(s) as a result of Hurricane Harvey. This information is helpful to understand the effort taken by the district to aid our families in covering costs while it is possible to do so, and also with regard to the recent decision made by our Board of Trustees to invest $1.2 Million from the district to cover the cost of student breakfast and lunch for the 2022-23 school year as we make strides toward Priority 1: Exceptional Student Performance (understanding that ensuring all children are fed helps ensure all students are set for success in the classroom).

VIDEO MESSAGE from the SUPERINTENDENT: Please CLICK HERE to watch an important VIDEO MESSAGE from Dr. Michelle Cavazos regarding this decision, and what to expect in years to come as the district anticipates returning to the standard payment process for student meals after the 2022-23 school year. Thank you!


 

  


 

 


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 Food and Nutrition Services should provide and support professional training opportunities in order to maintain a well-trained, highly motivated staff.

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.

ABOUT US

The Nutrition Services Department is one of the largest support services departments in the District with over 85 employees. Our staff prepares and serves over 8,000 breakfasts and lunches daily, a total of about 1.5 million meals per year, at all our campuses.

These programs are administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) at the state level. All of our food and beverages served meet strict federal guidelines from the USDA and TDA.

We are self-funded and do not receive funds from local property taxes. We receive federal reimbursement and earn revenue to pay for all of our departmental expenses.
