HISD takes pride in ensuring its students are served a well-balanced lunch to help fuel their learning. To recognize those efforts, Nutrition Services has partnered with the School Nutrition Association to celebrate National School Lunch Week, which runs Oct. 10-14.
“Our role in supporting our students is crucial,” said Betti Wiggins, HISD Nutrition Services Officer. “By providing healthy food, we can fuel our students learning and future success.”
