RRISD Food Service
Good Nutrition & Learning go Hand in Hand.

Whether your child eats with us every day or just on special days, your business is important to us. The Food Service department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy lifestyle habits, good nutrition and fitness practices.

There are special people on staff at our schools whose job is to help improve students’ concentration and classroom participation, increase standardized test scores, and make sure students stay healthy and ready to learn.

Amazingly, these members of our educational team perform all of these impressive feats while wearing hairnets and aprons! Our Food Service employees may not see the inside of a classroom very often, but they do make a daily contribution to your students’ educational success. It is really a very simple recipe: research shows that students who eat well learn better. So the hard work that is done in our kitchens every day isn’t just about preparing and serving meals… it’s also about helping make good education possible.

River Road I.S.D. participates in the National School Lunch Program, the National School Breakfast Program and the After School Snack Program. Breakfast and lunch are available for all students every school day.  Nutritious and tasty meals are served to students throughout the district. Our programs encourage students to make good choices in food and physical activity for a healthy lifestyle.

We continue to constantly strive to serve appealing, tasty, and nutritious meals that meet our students’ expectations, while complying with the strict nutritional guidelines set by the State and Federal Government. We hope you will allow your children to come eat with us this year.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at our schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

We look forward to meeting all our students this year.  Our goal is to make a difference in their lives.

If you have any questions about our programs or our department please call us at 806-381-7833.

Sincerely,

Kim Terry & Food Service Team
