At AISD, our mission is to support the achievement of all students by expanding food access, serving healthy, tasty meals, and providing learning opportunities about nutrition, cultural foodways and the food system.
AISD is committed to reinventing the urban school meal experience and is recognized as a national leader in innovative food services programs. We have made great strides in creating desired dining destinations by implementing innovative approaches to modernize school dining and expand access to healthy meals: Breakfast in the Classroom, after school meals, salad bars, food trucks, family style, dispersed dining, zero-waste, plant-forward and scratch cooking with an emphasis on global flavors.
School menus at AISD exceed the federal nutrition guidelines and emphasize making vegetables the center of the plate by featuring a variety of fresh produce, salad bars and plant-based options daily. Our menus include chef prepared recipes using locally grown, sustainably raised, clean label ingredients.
