  • CHILD NUTRITION

    The Child Nutrition department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

    Now you can apply for free or reduced school meals online! The process is quick easy and FREE, and in a few short steps you’ll be done!

    APPLY FOR BENEFITS ONLINE

    If a student was on the meal program at the end of the last school year, the benefit will carry over for the first 30 Days of school. A new application must be submitted to continue benefits for each school year.

    Now you can check on the status of your application for free or reduced school meals online. This is also a FREE service. Visit www.schoollunchstatus.com and then select your state (Texas) and then your District (Richardson). Enter the confirmation number from the online application or the student's name and ID number. Click "Submit" to view your application status. It's that easy! You can also print your own letter for proof of meal benefits from this site.
