Cleveland ISD Child Nutrition Services

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.



Cleveland ISD Child Nutrition will be serving meals free to all children beginning September 5, 2017 and ending on September 30, 2017.  Hurricane Harvey severely impacted our community and this  temporary waiver from Texas Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture will be very helpful to our families that were effected by this storm.  

Don't wait till September 30th to apply for free and reduced meals!  Apply now so that your benefit determination is in place for October 1, 2017.

What happens to money in accounts from last year or for students who withdraw?

Any student with a positive balance in their account will begin the year with the same positive balance for the 17-18 school year.  Your student's meal account will stay with them for their entire enrollment in Cleveland ISD--from PK to graduation!  Even if your student withdraws from Cleveland ISD, their  balance remains in their meal account until the parent/guardian request a refund or a transfer to another siblings account.   Parents/Guardians can even request to donate the remaining balance to help students with negative balances!  How can you request a refund, transfer or donation?  Email for the form.  Only written requests will be processed and they must be signed by the parent or guardian.  If your student withdrew from Cleveland ISD, their meal account will become deactivated.  Any balance left in the account will remain in the account.  That means if  you didn't request a refund, transfer or donation, any funds left in the account will be available to them as soon as the meal account becomes active.
