HISD’s Nutrition Services department was recently recognized for completing the Local Products Challenge during School Breakfast Week 2015.
Each year, the Texas Department of Agriculture challenges schools to use more Texas products in the meals they serve during National School Breakfast Week and recognizes those who complete the challenge.
HISD served four menu items that were locally sourced, including skim and 1% milk, apple juice, and cinnamon toast.
“We are very proud to receive this recognition,” said Amanda Oceguera, Nutrition Services manager. ”HISD Nutrition Services is committed to serving local products in our schools.”
This was the district’s second year of recognition. HISD Nutrition Services was also presented with a certificate for completing the local products challenge last year.
