The Wylie ISD Student Nutrition Department believes it takes a team to educate a child. We are an active partner in the Wylie ISD team. We are dedicated to enhancing your student’s academic performance while meeting or exceeding all state and federal government guidelines. Our goal and promise are to provide the best customer care while serving safe, nutritious, quality meals and encouraging students to develop the life-long skills and knowledge to make healthy food choices.
Our breakfast and lunch programs are designed to provide nutritious meals for growing children. Breakfast is available at all schools, and all District students may purchase a variety of hot lunch selections or fresh salads. Our breakfast meal provides one quarter of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for children, and lunch provides one third of the RDA. The Nutrition Services Department has actively taken steps to reduce the fat content of school meals to 30 percent or less, as recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
We thank you for allowing us to serve your children. If you have any questions, please contact us at 972.429.2330.
STATE OFFERS ONE-TIME MEAL BENEFIT (P-EBT deadline is now extended)
The state of Texas is offering a one-time food benefit, Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), for families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school closures. Eligible P-EBT families will receive application instructions from schools in late May. The P-EBT application is open now through August 21.
P-EBT benefits are for children 5-18 years old who receive d SNAP benefit or children who received free/reduced-price meal benefits during the 2019-2020 school year. Each child will be qualified for up to $285. Depending on when the F/R application for each household is approved, the benefit amount will be prorated by the number of days impacted if the household application was approved after the Governor issued the executive order to close schools statewide.
