WISD Food Services

                                     Welcome to the Winnsboro ISD Food Service Page.

    Winnsboro ISD Food Service Department offers healthy, nutritious meals to students.  We operate within the guidelines and regulations that are set forth by USDA and TDA.


 WISD Online Lunch Application

   Parents are encouraged to go online and apply or complete a paper application (available at any campus cafeteria), but do not need to do both.  Online applications are processed faster than paper applications and approval or denial of benefits may be viewed online as soon as the application has been processed. Contact any campus cafeteria if you need help or access to a computer. You may apply for these benefits at any time during the school year.  Parents or guardians are responsible for the cost of student meals until the NSLP Free/Reduced application is completed and approved.  Winnsboro ISD participates in the state’s Direct Certification Program.  If your household qualifies and you do not receive a letter, please contact the Food Service Department.

Payment methods

    Meals can be paid for at each campus cafeteria with cash or check.  Please make checks out to WISD Lunch Fund. We do not cash checks for students. All checks received will be fully applied to the student account and will be deposited at the end of each day.  Refund requests are processed by the Food Service Department and mailed to the parent or guardian. 


  Lunch Money Now is a software program that is available to prepay for meals.  A processing fee will apply to all transactions. Please call the Food Service Office at 903-342-5716 if you need help accessing your child’s information.


Student ID Numbers

    A student ID number is used to identify students when they come through the serving line.  Students enter their PIN on a keypad.  Please contact the Food Service office if you feel that your child’s ID number has been stolen or misused.  Please encourage your student to learn their number and to never share this information with other students.  WISD will refund any charges if it has been determined that an ID number was stolen or misused. 


Daily Limits

 Parents may contact the Food Service office or campus cafeteria to request a limit for daily spending on a student account.


Morning Tutorials

 All school campus cafeterias open at 7:15am to accommodate students.



Winnsboro ISD WILL SERVE UP GOOD NUTRITION FOR LOCAL CHILDREN THIS SUMMER.  Bringing healthy summer meals to Winnsboro children ensures kids have a healthy vacation and return to school ready to learn.


Winnsboro, TX – This summer, Winnsboro ISD will operate an open site to connect children

18 and younger and enrolled student with disabilities up to 21 years old with healthy, no cost summer meals. The Seamless Summer Program (SSO) is a U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition program administered in the Lone Star State by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). For the children who rely on school meals during the academic year, these meals offer a source of good nutrition when school is out for the long summer vacation.


Meals will be offered for the summer months starting June 1, 2020 at Winnsboro Elementary School.  We will distribute meals on Monday & Thursday.  Students will receive 1 hot/2 cold lunches and 3 shelf stable breakfasts on Monday. Students will receive 1 hot/1 cold lunch and 2 shelf stable breakfasts on Thursday.  Meals will be distributed between 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on the east side of the building.  Please contact us at 903-342-5716 or email us at lunches@winnsboroisd.org  if your child will be participating and has an allergy or need to request a special diet due to a medical condition. 


Winnsboro ISD is one of the organizations partnering with TDA to serve meals across Texas. Families are encouraged to use these three tools to find a meal site anywhere in the state:


  • Call 2-1-1 to speak to a live operator
  • Visit www.SummerFood.org for an interactive site locator map
  • Text FOODTX or COMIDA to 877-877


Organizations partner with TDA to serve meals in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Eligible sponsoring organizations include schools, faith-based groups, nonprofit summer camps, government agencies and other tax-exempt organizations. All meal sites must be sponsored by an organization that has a contract with TDA.


Summer meal sites help children succeed by providing the nourishment they need to return to school in the fall ready to thrive.
