Child Nutrition is Here to Serve You
Judson ISD will continue to provide access to healthy, tasty meals for all students during the 2020-2021 school year. On August 24th, we will return to the NSLP (National School Lunch Program). We will provide breakfast and lunch bundles on Mondays and Thursdays. Monday’s bundle will contain meals for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday’s bundle will provide meals for Thursday and Friday.
Families have two options for picking up meals. Curbside service will be available for those wishing to pick up their meal from a campus. The Transportation Department is partnering with Child Nutrition to deliver meals via bus routes. Campus curbside pick-up times and bus delivery times will be announced once scheduling is complete.
Judson ISD Families, please fill out a student information card for each student picking up a meal bundle at a bus stop or curbside. Presenting the card at meal pick up will help us with social distancing and speed up service.
NSLP meals will be charged to students based on their eligibility of free, reduced-price, or full-paid. My Payments Plus is recommended for convenient, secure online payments. www.mypaymentsplus.com/. Lunch money can also be turned in to child nutrition workers during meal distribution, or at all school offices. We encourage you to bring exact change or consider depositing change in the student’s account.
- Students should bring student ID card, student ID number, or official letter/email from the school listing the children enrolled at the campus
- Parents or guardians may pick up meals for enrolled students without the student present, but need to bring the student’s ID card, student’s ID number, or official letter/email from the school listing the children enrolled at the campus
- Only enrolled students will be served meals
We look forward to serving you. Questions? Please call 210-945-6720 for more information. Thank you!

- Clean — Wash hands and surfaces often. Always wash hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food.
- Separate — Don't cross-contaminate. Keep raw meat, poultry, fish, and their juices away from other food. After cutting raw meats, wash cutting board, utensils, and countertops with hot, soapy water.
- Cook — Cook to the right temperature. Heat hot food to 165 degrees and keep cold foods cold, below 40 degrees.
- Chill — Refrigerate promptly.
- Perishable food should not be left out more than 2 hours at room temperature—1 hour when the temperature is above 90 degrees.
