What's on the Menu at CCISD

Each CCISD campus has an onsite school cafeteria that serves breakfast, lunch, and a la carte snacks during scheduled meal times. Our dedicated foodservice team provides nutritious and balanced meals to all students and staff within CCISD.

Student Meals in CCISD

Good nutrition plays a crucial role in the development and growth of your child during adolescence. Students who participate in school meal programs consume more whole grains, milk, fruit, and vegetables during meals.

Our Child Nutrition Dietician creates nutritionally sound menus that meet the needs of students while maintaining compliance with all state and federal guidelines as they relate to the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

While lunch can always be brought from home, there are a variety of food options available for students in the school cafeterias. Breakfast and lunch meals are offered daily and students may receive special pricing by building a complete meal. Students may qualify for additional meal benefits through the Free and Reduced Meal Program. A la carte items (snacks) are also available for students to purchase.

Scheduled meals times are determined by campus and grade level. For specific meal times for your student, please contact your campus administrator.

Each cafeteria serving line has a digital menu board that displays the daily menu. Students use the digital menu as a tool to aid them in building a complete meal as well as knowing what is available on the a la carte menu.

Online menus and payment options are available through SchoolCafè. The Free and Reduced Meal Program (breakfast and lunch) is available for qualifying families within the District.

    SchoolCafè Overview & Instructions

    CCISD leverages SchoolCafè as an online menu and payment management system for all student meals. This robust platform allows families to add funds to a student account, check account history, set a la carte purchasing restrictions, view and print school menus, review nutrition and allergen information, as well as apply for meal benefits. It is also the payment method for student meals in our school cafeterias.

    The following sections outline how to navigate the basics of the system.

    Free & Reduced Meal Program

    The Free and Reduced Meal Program provides an opportunity for eligible families with enrolled students at CCISD to receive meals at a discounted price or at no cost based on program requirements. During a normal operating school year, the cost of a meal is determined by the student’s eligibility – Free, Reduced or Paid. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows us to offer meals to all CCISD PK-8th grade students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.  Each elementary and intermediate school student within the District is eligible for one free breakfast and one free lunch per day. A qualifying free meal must follow the guidelines listed. If meal guidelines are not met, payment will be owed at check-out.
