Meal Pricing for JISD Students 

 
 
School districts across the nation, such as Joshua ISD, that have successfully offered quality meals at pricing below the nation's average, have been mandated to evaluate their lunch pricing structure each school year using criteria set forth by USDA to calculate the minimum price for a Full Paid Student lunch.  All student meals regardless of the eligibility status are subsidized by the USDA.  The Child Nutrition Department of JISD will continue to provide first quality products and meals which well exceed the minimum requirements set forth by the USDA.

Meal Pricing for Adults (including children that are not yet JISD students)
 
Since the expressed purpose of federal assistance is to safeguard the health and well-being of the nation’s students, meals served to adults or non students are not eligible for federal cash reimbursement— therefore, the reimbursements received for serving students must not be used to pay for adult or non student meals. 
This is the reason for the higher price for the adult or non student customer.  The adult or non student customer is served the same portion sizes of our customers regardless of the campus visiting.  Iced Tea may be substituted for milk at no additional charge. 
 
Breakfast
    $2.00
