Nutrition Services to host annual Thanksgiving lunch for students

HISD Nutrition Services is gearing up to host its annual Thanksgiving lunch for students across the district on Thursday, Nov. 15.

The special celebration, occurring during normal lunch hours, is an HISD tradition that has attracted thousands of families to school cafeterias for more than 50 years. The event gives parents a chance to celebrate the holiday a week early by sharing a meal with their children.

This year’s menu will include roasted turkey, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, seasoned green beans, a fresh fruit medley, and sweet potato cake.

Nutrition Services Officer Betti Wiggins said she looks forward to this special occasion.

“There’s nothing better than sharing a healthy and hearty meal with your loved ones,” Wiggins said. “It is the perfect opportunity for students, their families, teachers and school staff to experience the fellowship of the season and kick off the holiday festivities.”
