JISD Brings Food To You!

The Judson ISD Child Nutrition Department is proud to unveil its new mobile feeding unit called "Bus'N Meals."  It is a fully converted bus that features such conveniences as a full size warmer, refrigerator, four steam wells, multi-colored LED lights, comfortable seating, device charging stations and nutritional education information.  Child Nutrition launched the new initiative recently and made one of its first visits to Judson Learning Academy.  It will likely continue to be used beyond the school year to serve students over the summer. 

JISD Child Nutrition Best Of The Bunch Award

The Texas Department of Agriculture selects an elite number of school districts across the state that are setting standards for quality, variety, nutrition, and selection of food for student and staff meals.  That exclusive award is called the Best of the Bunch.  Less than 10 percent of school districts reach this achievement.  It takes a commitment to making sure that there is a variety to expand the palettes of students so they will grow and mature into a healthy lifestyle. It encourages the use of local food products when possible so it's fresher and tastier for kids and at the same time it supports local producers. Congratulations to Child Nutrition Director Janet Daniel,  Assistant Director Beveylon Concha, Secretary Maria Krohn and of course all the people who prepare, serve and plan the meals for all of our staff and students. 

VIP Breakfast At Spring Meadows

The Child Nutrition staff at Spring Meadows held a contest recently that encouraged students to eat breakfast when they came to school.  Each time they did, their name was put in the hopper for a drawing that would win a VIP-style breakfast.  Principal Barrera drew the names of the VIP Breakfast Stars and each student that won picked someone to come along with them.  

When the big morning arrived each student was indeed treated like a VIP with table-side service from the Child Nutrition staff on the cafeteria stage. While they were munching down on the chow, the tables included some fun crafts that the students could enjoy.  

The next VIP breakfast at Spring Meadows will be in November.  All students are encouraged to participate!!
