Keeping students fueled is the top priority of the district's child nutrition staff, which includes 180 cafeteria workers who greet every student with a smile.

Comal ISD partners with Chartwells for a winning combination. Chartwells' menus are built to support the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and use recipes that taste great and are lower in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. Our menus also provide whole grains, fruits, vegetables and appropriate portion sizes for all age groups. We analyze our recipes for nutrient content and food values using a food-based menu planning and analysis program that complies with child nutrition guidelines for the National School Breakfast & Lunch programs.
