Summer Lunch Program Starts June 9th

For some, having a something good and healthy to eat during the summer time is a challenge.  Parents may be at work and kids are out of school, so where can they go?  Fortunately, the Judson ISD Child Nutrition Department has a great schedule for breakfast and lunch that will keep them fueled up for an active summer. Most sites will serve through the end of July. Take a look. 


What's For Lunch? Paschall Gets Student Feedback

Sometimes it's a balancing act for school lunch planners to serve food that is both healthy and that students will eat.  In fact, some experts put the value of food waste at U.S. school cafeterias at around $1 billion dollars a year. At Paschall Elementary School the Student Health Advisory Committee recently met with Delia Hensel (Cafeteria Manager), Cecilia Alvarez (Social Worker) and Maria Estrada (Child Nutrition Supervisor). It was a meeting where the student committee members gave feedback and made suggestions for changes in the cafeteria menu...as long as they meet nutritional guidelines. 

Preps For Thanksgiving Community Dinner

It takes a lot of work and volunteers to make an event come off as successful as the Judson ISD Thanksgiving Community Dinner has for years.  I Day, 4 Hours, 2,000 Fed...that's the bottom line, but there is so much more to making it a thank you to the community that is warm, entertaining and tasty.  Here are some examples of some of the work going on in preparation for the big event.  Don't forget, it's Saturday, November 23rd at Wagner High School (3000 North Foster) from 10 am to 2 pm.  Come for the food, stay for the entertainment, leave with a full heart and body.
