National School Lunch Program

Regulations require that all school lunches meet the recommendation of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. 

In addition, lunch must provide one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C

and calories as well as no more than 30% of calories from fat and less than 10% of calories from saturated fat.

         Offer versus Serve 'Lunch'

Eagle Pass ISD has implemented "Offer versus Serve" at all grade levels except for our early childhood centers*.

Students may decline no more then two of the food components. Students must take full servings of at least 3 of the 5 food components for a lunch to be reimbursable.
