Due to the large number of allergies in the district, The Child Nutrition Department will only make dietary accommodations when a doctor completes the Special Dietary Request Form stating that the allergy is life threatening and provides us with suggested dietary alternatives.

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.

INFORMATION for the week of February 22nd through 26th:

Due to disruptions in food and supply deliveries, we will back up the menu and serve what was previously on the menu for the 16th through 19th on the Week of February 22nd through the February 26th.  Please understand that there may be menu substitutions this week due to the lack of availability of some products.  For example, milk will not be available at breakfast on Monday, 02/22, but our supply should arrive in time for lunch.  The Child Nutrition Department is fully aware of the boil water order that is in place for many of our campuses and has made the necessary adjustments.  For Monday, campuses will serve sausage biscuits for breakfast and a choice of chicken nuggets or steak fingers with fries and green beans with a canned fruit for lunch.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience these changes may cause for your family.
