AMS Cafeteria

Child Nutrition Home Page

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.

***There is a new charge policy that all parents need to be aware of.  The policy in the handbook reads as follows:  Students will be allowed a $10 charge to be paid in full as soon as possible. The parents will be notified when there is a negative balance.  After that, an alternative lunch (sandwich/milk) will be provided from the cafeteria. If the outstanding balance is not paid in full, possible sanctions could be imposed by the campus. Once a negative balance appears on the students account there will be no charging for extras (snacks,drinks,ale carte items).

Water and juice is an optional beverage that we provide as an ale carte for purchase to the students, but we encourage them to also take a 8oz. milk and/or a 4oz. juice which is a qualifying food item and comes with the meal. Students will be allowed to purchase snack items and extra ala carte items in addition to their trays as long as they have money in their lunch account or they bring cash daily.
