GISD Policy-Outside Foods in Cafeteria


Greenville Independent School District     

Letter to Parents        




It is the policy of Greenville Independent School District to adhere to Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) concerning meals delivered by parents to their students. According to TDA, it is acceptable for parents to bring their child any meal options they deem fit. However, they may not bring another student any food items. To protect GISD students from being exposed to food allergens, and to prevent adulterated food, or food not meeting TDA nutrition guidelines to enter the school, GISD requires that all food items brought for parties and celebrations be in retail packages with clear appropriate FDA food contents labeling . Many foods contain traces of allergens and home baked items may not always meet approved safe food guidelines. 

 We appreciate your understanding and adherence to this policy.
