    Child Nutrition Programs

    Providing delicious, high quality meals, packed with nutrients is our goal at GISD.  You can find our amazing kitchen crews working hard every day to make scratch-cooked meals for students at all of our campuses.  We offer a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and entrees daily so your students can enjoy a meal tailored just to them. All of our meals meet or exceed USDA and TDA  nutritional guidelines, so your students have the fuel they need to focus on learning throughout the day.  Our menu has been revamped for the 2020-2021 school year by our chef and kitchen managers to bring in some yummy new dishes as well as bring back some of your student's old favorites.  We are looking forward to serving your students and families in the 2020-2021 school year with some exciting new activities, programs, and contests designed to get Gunter ISD  families healthy, moving, and participating in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs!
