Food Service Mission

 

The Mission of the Alto ISD Food Service Department is to provide nutritional meals to our students throughout the district, with optimum customer service and food safety, while adhering to state and federal guidelines.  

 

What Makes A Meal

 

Five components (Grain, Meat/Meat Alternate, Fruits, Vegetables and Dairy) must be offered to a student at lunch. The student must take 3 of the components for the meal to qualify for a reimbursable meal and one of the components must be a fruit or vegetable. Four items (Grain, Fruits or Vegetable and Dairy) must be offered to a student at breakfast. The student must take 3 items for the meal to qualify for a reimbursable meal and one of the components must be a fruit or vegetable.
