New Lunch Menu For WFISD

All WFISD schools are taking a new direction in the lunch room. School officials said they're taking on a brand similar to Subway, where all of their food is to be in compliance with the new U.S. Department of Agriculture food standards.

School officials say the new lunches being served are tastier and healthier than years past.

Planning began in March and the school district began implementing those changes during the summer.

Cafeteria manager, Carrie Tremble said the goal was to improve the quality and the nutritional value of the food at the same time.

“So they took into consideration what the kids would like and they looked at the nutritional value and we took it from there, said WFISD Public Information Officer, Renae Murphy.

All of the snacks on the snack line have to go through the USDA's food calculator, where a computer program calculates a detailed analysis of all the foods being served in the cafeteria. Foods that fail to meet USDA guidelines are not allowed to be served.

Renae Murphy encourages parents to send their kids through the lunch line this year. She said parents will be very happy with the quality and nutritional value of the food.

Families that are struggling to afford school lunches can apply for free or reduced lunch prices through the child nutrition department.
