TSD Food Services
Going into the 2022-2023 school year, the restaurant supply chain is still suffering delays and shortages across the country. We are a part of the same distribution system and want to apologize in advance if a posted menu is not available.
We will do everything we can to ensure our students have plenty of options to choose from.
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
Welcome to the Texas School for the Deaf Food Services!
The Food Services Department is a part of the education team, providing students with nutritious meals that promote health and a positive learning atmosphere. It is also one of the busiest areas at the school! The staff prepares 3 meals a day, provides snacks for the dorms and food for special events and students with special dietary needs.
Food Services analyzes recipes for nutrient content and food values using a food-based menu planning and analysis program that complies with the child nutrition guidelines for the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs (NSLP) that is established by The United States Department of Agriculture (TDA).
TSD follows Texas Public School nutrition policy guidelines available at SquareMeals.com.
TSD offers Breakfast in the Cafeteria, making sure students start the day off right with a nutritious breakfast. All students are offered all 5 meal components each day (meat/meat alternative, grain (bread or pasta), 2 vegetables, fruit, and milk) considered a complete meal.
Students with allergies should contact the TSD Nurse at 512-844-7980 and the Cafeteria at 517-462-5635 for accommodations. Students with special dietary needs must have documentation on file from a Physician and be turned in to the school nurse. Forms can be found on this website.
We look forward to serving your students!
If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at the TSD Food Services Department at 512-462-5657 or email [email protected]
