2017-2018 Help Keep Student Meal Accounts Current

Give today to support Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services

Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services are committed to providing healthy food access for all students. Our charging and courtesy meal policies are in place to ensure no student goes without a balanced meal, regardless of their account balance or payment status. This initiative allows members of the community to contribute funds to help cover the negative balance of student meal accounts.

Our Goal
 
Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services are committed to providing nutritious, appetizing meals that promote health, well-being and learning. Equity and food access are important district values, and being able to bring fresh, healthy and sustainably raised food to students all over the city is our focus. 
 
How You Can Help
 
Austin ISD cafés serve over 80,000 meals per day. Around 700 courtesy meals that meet the same nutrition requirements as menued meals are served each day, which equates to a cost of over $350,000 each year that is covered by the District Food Service Department. This campaign allows individuals to contribute funds to help bring student meal accounts current.  
 
How the Process Works
 
If students exhaust their meal account, there is a grace period during which the student can charge meals to his or her account. Elementary and middle school students may charge up to three meals and high school students may charge up to two meals. In the event a student reaches the maximum charge limit on his or her meal account, at the beginning of the lunch line the student will be provided a courtesy meal that meets the same nutrition requirements as all other meals offered. If a student has already selected a remibursable meal by the time he or she reaches the cashier, food service personnel allows the student to keep the tray.

It breaks my heart as a mom to think of children who are too hungry to learn, or who feel ashamed when they can't afford lunch every day.

Kids shouldn't have to worry about things like this. The only thing a kid should be worried about is what cartoon he or she is going to watch first when they get home or what excuse they are going to give tomorrow for not doing there homework.
