Description of Services:
The Borger Independent School District's Food Services Department is the convening authority on the Cafeterias and the meals provided to each student in the District.  All food and services provided are prepared in accordance with the Nutrition Guidelines set up by the State of Texas' Department of Agriculture and adopted by the Texas   Education Agency.


Borger Independent School District participates in the National School Lunch Program as administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A).

Some students are eligible to receive a free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast if the family household meets specific income thresholds.

Returning students application requirement:  ALL returning students must complete a new meal application within 30 days of the start of the new school year.  Families who fail to re-apply will lose eligibility for free or reduced-price meals and will be fully responsible for paying prior charges on their student’s account.

New students:  All newly registered students must apply as soon as possible for free or reduced-price meals.

Currently enrolled students:  At any time during the school year, families may apply for free or reduced-price meals.  Sometimes families experience job or income loss during the year and this is an opportune time to apply.

Households can find the school meal application here, picked up at the campuses or the Administration Building, 200 East Ninth Street. 

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
