National School Lunch Week

It is our pleasure to serve the students of Hondo ISD each and every school day.  We strive to make the meal nutritious, attractive and tasty! 

Parents are encouraged to visit the cafeteria and eat lunch with their child. Meals are available for parents to purchase. The visitor meal consists of the same items offered to the students. A parent can only bring food and/or beverages for consumption by their child. A parent cannot provide any food item to another child, even with parental permission.

We highly encourage that beverages sent with lunches should include a choice of milk, 100% juice, or water.

Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

Meyer Elementary, Woolls Intermediate and McDowell Middle School will be participating in the CEP School Meal Program for school year 2019-2020. Students attending these three campuses will receive one Free Breakfast and one Free Lunch daily, and will not be required to complete an application to receive meals free of charge. Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
For additional information please contact the following person:

Attention: Michele Thacker, Director of Child Nutrition
2802 Avenue Q  Hondo, TX  78861  830-426-3027


Students attending Hondo High School will be required to fill out an application to participate in the Free/Reduced meal program. All students registering for school to attend HHS campus will be provided an application for Free/Reduced priced meals annually at the beginning of the school year.

High School Meal Application

Schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and/or School Breakfast Program (SBP) (and that are not participating in a special provision program) are required to send a letter to parents/guardians that contains the Income Eligibility Guidelines for Determining Free and Reduced Price Benefits along with a Free and Reduced Price School Meal application form.  Hondo High School Students will receive this information in their orientation packet (all other schools provide free meals).  Applications can also be found on this website for downloading.  The application is available in two versions - English and Spanish.

Contact the Food & Nutrition Services Office at 830-426-7600 or visit us at the Food & Nutrition Services Office located in the Cafeteria at Woolls Intermediate located at 2802 Ave Q in Hondo if you have any questions.  We'll be happy to help you understand the process and answer any questions you may have regarding your child's eligibility.

Records must be updated yearly for students with special dietary needs.

A medical statement must be on file in the Food& Nutrition Services offices for any students. Please find Exhibit B for the form or contact the campus nurse or the Food & Nutrition manager at any of the district campuses.
