The TCSD Food Service Department is committed to providing high quality, healthy food for students to support learning.
Wellness Food Service Goals
TCSD Health and Wellness Policy
To encourage kids to eat more fruits and vegetables:
All whole fruits and vegetables are now free to all students. To offset the cost of the whole fruits and vegetables we will increase the price of chips $0.25.
All children who purchase a qualified meal may return to salad bar as many times as they would like at no cost. Any student who attempts to purchase a second entree without the proper funds will be guided to the salad bar at no cost.
We will continue the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program at all elementary schools for the current school year. A transfer from the general fund will offset the cost to the Food Service Program.
To encourage students at middle school to eat healthier options
Student’s are only able to select one “snack” item per meal. A snack is defined as Chips, Cheetos, fruit snacks, Rice Krispie bars, Chex mix, Cheez-its and any other non essential food. All snacks must still meet the smart snack requirements.
