AMS Cafeteria

Alvord ISD will again be offering all students one free breakfast and one free lunch meal every school day of the 2021-22 school year.  Second meals and snacks will not be free.  The free meals are federally funded and are being made possible due to the waivers available from the US Department of Agriculture. 


Welcome to the Alvord Middle School Lunchroom page. We look forward to serving our students a well balanced nutritional meal that meets the Texas Department of Agriculture's Texas Public School Nutrition Policy. Our cafeteria is offer vs. serve, which means that we offer at least five qualifying food items to each student and they may choose all or at least three and one being a fruit or vegetable for the tray to qualify for the state's nutritional guidelines. Please click on the above link to view the menu.  All menu's are subject to change.

***Students are allowed to buy a second meal or ale carte items only if they have a positive balance.
