On March 18, 2019 the CISD Board of Trustees recognized Director Cindy Lewis on behalf of the Child Nutrition Team for their recent Sharp Cheddar Award from the Texas Department of Agriculture. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller recognized the Community ISD Child Nutrition Department with the Sharp Cheddar Award for their achievement in the Texas Department of Agriculture 2018 Farm Fresh Challenge. Community ISD was proud to participate in the challenge which incorporate more Texas products in meals and provide memorable lessons about healthy lifestyles and Texas agriculture.
“Texas agriculture offers something local for any meal or menu and when schools serve that food in the cafeteria, families are more likely to put in on the table at home,” Commissioner Miller said. “When a school meal includes products like citrus, lean beef or low-fat milk from Texas, it provides a lesson in healthy eating that lasts a lifetime and an economic boost that benefits the entire community.”
Sharp Cheddar award winners met the second highest standards of the Farm Fresh Challenge and have showcased extraordinary commitment to Texas agriculture. The Community ISD Child Nutrition team continues to offers our Braves fresh fruit and vegetables everyday!
