Victoria Ybarra Director of Student Nutrition Services
To contribute to the well-being of every student by providing nutritious, appealing meals in order for each student to learn and perform at the highest level.
The Red Oak ISD School Nutrition Department participates in the National School Lunch Program, and the School Breakfast Program. Our team of food and nutrition professionals are dedicated to providing quality meals to students, staff, and visitors, and support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
All meals, snacks, and beverages sold or served at schools meet the requirements of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act and the Smart Snacks in School policy. We encourage students to make healthy meal choices by providing access to a variety of healthy menu options, and daily choices of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Red Oak ISD Student Nutrition Department offers a way to put money in your child's lunch account. Online depostis may be made through mySchoolBucks. Parents are able to register for an account and view information for free. Parents are also able to view account balances or recent purchases in the school cafeteria, add money to their child's account, and setup low balance alerts through this award-winning, parent friendly system.
We appreciate all the time our students, parents and staff members took to let us know what they want in the cafeteria. We hear you, and we want to keep the feedback loop going as we continue to make improvements. Now that we don’t have so many restrictions at the high school, we’re open to new ideas, so keep them coming. Please use the LET'S TALK LUNCH online form to send your feedback.
Red Oak ISD Student Nutrition is focused on the health of our school environment. Our school district has established nutrition standards for all snacks sold in school by any entity, including parent/student organizations, teachers, boosters, fundraisers, or the food and nutrition services department. These standards for snack sales are in effect from any time before school through 1/2 hour after school, in accordance with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, the USDA and our district Wellness Policy. Non-compliant foods may be sold from 1/2 hour after school through the end of the day. These standards carefully balance science-based nutrition guidelines with practical and flexible solutions to promote healthier eating on campus.
