The Anna ISD Food Services Department recognizes the vital relationship between nutrition and education. We strive to ensure that every person is offered a high-quality, well-balanced, nutritious meal. Our qualified staff provides friendly service and follows high sanitation and safety standards, utilizing cost-effective management practices while following the Child Nutrition Program guidelines.
The USDA National School Lunch Program standards require schools to offer students the right balance of fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, whole grains, and protein foods. A student must choose at least three of the five components, and one must be a fruit or vegetable for lunch. A student must choose at least three of four components offered for breakfast.
If you have any questions, contact Child Nutrition Director Mitchell Burney. 972.924.1015
Online Payments are Preferred
We encourage parents to make cafeteria payments and manage meal accounts through our online system - MySchoolBucks. Payments take 24 hours to process.
Cash Drop-off Procedures
Cash is no longer be accepted in the serving lines. Parents not using our online payment system must place cash inside an envelope labeled with the student’s first and last name and student ID number.
Envelopes must be placed in the drop box located in the front office of the campus.
Envelopes will be picked up by cafeteria staff daily at 10 am. Envelopes placed in the dropbox after 10 am, will not be added to accounts until the next day.
Positive balances are carried over to the following school year.
Touch-Free System/Student ID Badges
Keypads have been removed from the cafeteria and replaced with barcode scanners. All students will be issued a badge with their name, ID number, and a bar code. Student ID badges must present for every transaction in the cafeteria lines.
Negative Balance Procedures
When a negative balance reaches $5.00 or more:
- Elementary students will be served a complete meal, excluding extra items.
- Secondary students will be served a modified meal, excluding extra items.
Negative balance letters are sent home weekly and mailed monthly. Mailing negative balance letters to the parents or guardian will minimize overt identification of the student. Anna ISD Food Service will work with the campus administrative staff to assist in collecting unpaid balances.
