PfISD Food Services AwardsBest of the Bunch Award - February 2018Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller recognized Pflugerville ISD with a Best of the Bunch Award for its achievement in the Texas Department of Agriculture’s 2017 Local Products Challenge.
Every October, the Local Products Challenge encourages school nutrition teams to incorporate more Texas products into meals and teach children about healthy lifestyles and Texas agriculture. Pflugerville ISD earned the award by meeting the highest standard of the challenge.
“Schools in the Local Products Challenge demonstrate a real commitment to combining nutrition education with support for their local economies and Texas’ bountiful agriculture industry,” 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.”Cream of the Crop Award - February 2015"Your commitment to serving a weekly average of at least three Texas products each day during NSLW, not only introduced students to local foods but set them on a course to make wise nutritional choices and establish healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Incorporating Texas grown food items into meals also supports local farmers and ranchers and creates an opportunity for them to be involved in creating healthy campus environments for Texas Students."
