Welcome to Child Nutrition!


On June 3, Joshua ISD will begin summer meal service.  Meals will be distributed every Wednesday through August 5th from 10:30am-12:30pm.  Meals will not be served the week of July 1.  Each Wednesday families will be given five breakfasts and five lunches for each child in their family between the ages of 1 and 18.  Children do not need to be present at the time of pick up, but parents must present documentation that shows proof the child is a member of their household.  

Acceptable documentation includes 2019-20 report cards, birth certificates, or student IDs.  Children do not have to be Joshua ISD students to be eligible to receive meals.  

Meal pick up will be at the Joshua High School cafeteria.  Parents will need to park next to the ROTC building and walk to the double doors at the back of the cafeteria to pick up the meals.  We ask that you please observe social distancing when picking up meals.  

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call the Child Nutrition department at (817) 202-2500 ext. 1353.


Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

The Child Nutrition Department of Joshua ISD is a nonprofit enterprise that employs over 60 food service professionals. We take pride in serving our customers a variety of delicious and nourishing meals through our breakfast and lunch program at all campuses, serving over 650,000 meals yearly.

The program’s objective is to improve the health of students by providing a variety of high quality, safe, nutritious foods that students will enjoy eating at a price affordable to them. The menus are planned and analyzed in accordance with federal and state guidelines for proper school age nutrition.
