Kilgore Independent School District

School Nutrition Services » Welcome!


The mission of Kilgore Independent School District School Nutrition Services Department is to provide tasty, nutritious meals, offer optimal customer service and food safety all while adhering to all state and federal guidelines.
The goals of Kilgore ISD School Nutrition Services are to:
  • Improve the health and education of the students through a nutritionally and educationally sound food service program.
  • Maintain and continuously develop high standards of school food service products and services.
  • Unite school and community efforts to assure that every student is receiving the best school food services available.
  • Recruit and train quality school food service staff to improve and protect the integrity of the service and product they provide for our students.
KISD school nutrition services has a charge policy for student meals.  Students will be eligible to charge 5 days worth of breakfast and lunch meals. After reaching the maximum limit, students will be offered the lowest cost reimbursable meal while arrangements are being made with the parents/guardians.  No a la carte items are eligible to charge at any time.  For more information, see the charge policy located on the right hand side of this page and also on the right hand side of the menu page.  . 
The Kilgore ISD School Nutrition Department will no longer be using chopped romaine lettuce or lettuce blends containing romaine lettuce for the remainder of the school year.  While it has been verified that KISD school nutrition does not have any products affected by the recall, it is out of an abundance of caution for our students, staff and community that we discontinue our use of romaine lettuce. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 
Studies have shown that students that eat breakfast have better concentration, higher test scores and less behavior problems because they are not hungry.
To help ensure our students are adequately nourished and ready to learn, Kilgore ISD will be offering a universal free breakfast to all students PreK-5th grades.
Kilgore ISD offers your student a nutritious breakfast Monday-Friday. Students have a choice of one or more entree items that include high quality proteins and are whole grain rich! Also offered at breakfast is a variety of 100% juice, fruit and fat free flavored or 1% unflavored milk.
Get your student off to a smart start with BREAKFAST!
