Working together for student academic success by promoting the 3 E's.
♥ Education ♥ Eating Right ♥ Exercise ♥
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.
