Dallas ISD Food and Child Nutrition Services (FCNS) mission is to provide nutrition that fuels successful learning. Our goal is to provide quality food on the serving line and a positive school meal experience all the time

School meals are designed by food service nutrition professionals to provide a variety of healthy options including vegetables, fruits, whole-grain rich items, protein-rich entrées and low fat milk.

If you have questions on the school meal program or would like to speak with a Registered Dietitian about how your family/students can eat the school meal way for good health, please contact Stephanie Reese, Nutrition Specialist, at or call 214-932-5426.

See what’s on the school menu , or learn about healthy snack ideas at home with the Smart Snack Brochure.


Special Diets

To better serve our students with special diet needs, all current dietary orders will need to be renewed at the start of every school year. Dietary requests will be valid only for the school year in which they are written and will expire at the end of each school year. Please submit renewal for a special diet to your school nurse on a current Dallas ISD Dietary Request Form. As with new dietary requests, signature from a physician or other recognized medical authority is required.

For more information contact Adrienne Smith, Nutrition Specialist, at or call 214-932-5594.
