Letter to all Households
From the BISD Director of Child Nutrition, Richard Mallard:We are excited about the addition of SFE as our new Foodservice management partner this school year. We know that there are some new challenges for all of us, but we are enthusiastically waiting to feed the kids, and try to return them some part of a happy and regular school day.We want to make sure that all students regardless of free, reduced, or paid meal status will be able enjoy every service line in every cafe. We will have options for all students on every open line daily, and no one will he excluded from a meal due to their eligibility status. We will have the following options available at each campus level:-Elementary schools will have up to 3 lunch entree options daily plus veg, fruit, and a choice of milk-Middle schools will have 4 lunch entree options daily with choice of 2 veggies, 2 fruits, and 2 milk options.-High schools will have 5 lunch entree options daily with choice of 2 veggies, 2 fruits, and 2 milk options.Breakfast at all schools will have a variety of cereals, hot, and cold entrees daily.SFE wants all parents, students, and teachers to know that we focus heavily on “from scratch” cooking and making food fresh daily and as it is needed each day. Due to current COVID 19 guidelines, SFE has had to reduce its program down to meet the regulations and add levels of safety. Normally, the SFE standards would be:-4-5 daily lunch entrees at the elementary level.-10-16 daily lunch entrees at the middle school level.-14-20 daily lunch entrees at the High school level-all levels would normally have FULL all you can eat salad bars as part of the normal meal with 4-6 daily fresh veggies and 2-3 fresh and canned fruits daily.-We would be able to offer made to order option and concepts daily at all campuses.-we would have multiple family breakfast and lunch throughout the year including a large Thanksgiving celebration.These are just some of the things SFE will be able to do for BISD students as we move through this year, and as we are able to safely come out of the COVID 19 regulations and back to a normal school experience.We want everyone to know that we have implemented some new safety measures to try and and ensure that lunch service is as safe as possible. These include:-all cafe workers wearing PPE that includes masks, face shields, hair nets/hats, and gloves .-We will also be serving everything to your student so as to reduce touch points and any transmission between students.-All items will be served in to go containers and all service ware will be sealed.-students can still buy snacks, but they will let the server know what they would like and the server will hand to student at the Point of Sale.One of the most exciting new programs we have implemented this year is NUTRISLICE. Nutrislice is a menu app with lots of added features that include:
Lunch Money Now will continue to be our payment and online student account management software.
- Fully interactive menus that allow you to rate each menu item so we know what your kids like.
- preorder option through our new NUTRISLICE app and Website which we are rolling out district wide.
- Ability to filter menus by allergens
- Full nutritional for all menu items
- we encourage all parents and students to preload lunch accounts through the app to try and reduce cash handling in the cafes.
