Powering Students Through Food

  • Food Services operates 45 kitchens within Williamson County and offers breakfast and lunch on a daily basis. Each kitchen is staffed with a Café Manager and several Café staff.

    For lunch, students must select at least three of the five food components. If desired, they can take all five of the components listed below. If a child only chooses to take the minimum number of components, one of the items must be a fruit or vegetable. The five components that make up a school lunch are:
