Mission Statement

The Mt. Pleasant ISD Food Service Department operates all meal services for the Mt. Pleasant Independent School District. Beginning with the Chidlhood Development Center and ending with the Mt. Pleasant High School, the MPISD Food Service Department provides approximately 1,900 breakfasts, 4,100 lunches and 700 snacks every day for Mt. Pleasant school children. The Mt. Pleasant ISD Food Service department also provides free breakfasts and lunches to all the children of our community during the time that summer school is in session in our district. This helps ensure that nutritious meals are available to low income children when regular school is not is session.

“Feeding the body to fuel the mind” is our Food Service Department motto. It is our belief that by ensuring that the students who patronize our cafeterias are met with friendly and caring servers who offer nutritious, appetizing meals is the embodiment of that philosophy. It is also our goal to help the children of Mt. Pleasant ISD learn to make healthy food choices and better understand the concept of portion control through nutrition education.

The Mt. Pleasant ISD Food Service is operated under an agreement with the United States Department of Agriculture as overseen by the Texas Department of Agriculture to provide wholesome, nutritious meals to our students under the regulations of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program and the Child Adult Care Food Program. It is the responsibility of the Mt. Pleasant ISD Food Service Department to comply with all United States Department of Agriculture rules and regulations in regard to these programs.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Mt. Pleasant ISD Food Service or any of the cafeterias, please call Laura Stewart @903-575-2096. You may also send an email Laura Stewart, at lstewart@mpisd.net.
