Policies

Rusk ISD Child Nutrition Department believes that nutrition plays a major role in learning. Rusk ISD Child Nutrition Department operates under the National School Lunch and Breakfast program with policies and direction from the Texas Department of Agriculture. The staff prepares all meals using approved menus and standardized recipes and are designed for taste appeal as well as meeting nutritional requirements.

Food Safety is top priority.

All food service personnel are required to attend a food handler class on a semi-annual basis.

Unannounced health inspections are done twice a year to thoroughly inspect all areas of the kitchen, storage facilities and food temperatures. These inspections are required by the state.
