A la carte pricing


Groesbeck ISD encourages the use of prepayment for breakfast and lunch to reduce the possibility of forgetting their breakfast or lunch money.  Meals are available to students with pre-paid meal accounts, who pay cash, or who are eligible for free and reduced meals. Federal regulations do not mandate meals to be provided to children without money.   The option of charging meals is a privilege for students and staff who have forgotten money. It is expected that meal accounts be replenished as soon as possible, and it’s required that all charges be paid by the end of the school year.  Charges for students who are approved for free meal benefits will be forgiven. Charges for students approved for reduced meal benefits are still owed.

Charging privileges are as follows:

Complete meals only are considered for students needing to charge a meal.  A la carte purchases are not permitted to be charged but may be purchased if the student has the cash to cover the purchase.

  • Students - All Grades: may charge complete, reimbursable meals - no limit

  • Staff/Faculty: may charge up to $25.00

  • Visitors/Others: charging is not permitted

Campus and district staff make every effort to notify households when money is owed. GISD will utilize different methods to communicate charges with you.

  • Phone Calls and Emails: The Child Nutrition staff may get in contact with you personally through phone and/or email.

  • Campus Administration Contact: We may request that a campus administrator gets in contact with you if we feel there is a reason to do so.

  • Mailed Notices: Notices are mailed when we feel that you may have forgotten to send or put money in your student's account.  

This fall we will start using an online payment system for those that wish to make payments online.  More information will be provided when this system is up and running.

Outside Food

Students may bring their lunch from home each day.  Food delivered to the campus during the day can only be brought by someone on the students emergency form.  The food delivered can only be given to the student you are on the emergency form for. This is due to all the different food allergies students have now that they may not be aware of.  


Allergy Information

Information regarding the district concerning allergies for students can be found in the student handbook. Parent(s) or guardian(s) of students with food allergies should notify the child’s campus of their child's allergies and request a form for written notification.  Contact your child’s campus regarding allergies and request an allergy information form for written notification.  The form needs to be returned to the school nurse at your child’s school.

Dietary Substitutions

Generally, children with food allergies or intolerance do not have a disability as defined in any of the Acts or laws, and the school food service may, but is not required to, make food substitutions for them.  However, when food allergies result in severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reactions, the child's condition would meet the definition of "disability" and the substitutions prescribed by a recognized medical authority (physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner) must be made.

Contact your child’s campus regarding necessary substitutions and request a dietary substitution form for written notification.  The form needs to be returned to the school nurse at your child's school.

USDANondiscrimination Statement (English) (Spanish)

The Child Nutrition department may contact you for additional information related to your child's specific needs.

Parents:  Remember that for life-threatening allergies or other serious conditions, meals from home provide the safest option.
