About Us

imageAlamo Heights ISD participates in the School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program and Seamless Summer Feeding Program. These programs are means to provide nutritious meals to children. They contribute to a better understanding of good nutrition and better eating habits. Research has proven that students who are well nourished perform better in school. Federal reimbursements are received for meals served to students that meet certain requirements outlined within the regulations.

In 2010, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act was passed. New meal pattern regulations were recently released by the USDA stating that all students must be served a food-based menu option. The food-based menu planning reflects the MyPlate Guidelines so that our students can choose a meal at breakfast or lunch that can include healthy choices from each of the five food categories: protein, grains, fruit, vegetables and milk. In addition, the new meal pattern will address 4 specific nutrients: calories, sodium, saturated fat and trans-fat.

Starting with the 2012-2013 school year, your student will continue to have a variety of daily choices and an increased variety of available fruits and vegetables. The new Food-based meal pattern regulations require your student to take at least a 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable daily along with two other food categories. This will encourage your student to consume more healthful foods!
Additionally, starting with the 2014-2015 school year, the new Smart Snacks regulations are in full effect.  This guarantees that all food sold in any AHISD school during the school day will have to meet new more healthy standards.  Essentially all food sold, including all snacks, will be healthy, flavorful, and nutritious.

All Proceeds and Revenue generated by the AHISD child Nutrition Department and Catering go directly back into the District to fund the Child Nutrition Program as well as other AHISD programs. 

We at SFE and AHISD strive to provide the highest quality and nutritious food, and our variety and quality of food and choices is unmatched We of a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Salad Bar at ALL SCHOOLS on the lunch line on a daily basis.  We encourage all children going through the line to get all the fresh fruit and veggies that they can eat.
