Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller announced the nutrition team in Texas City ISD has successfully completed the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) 2022 Fall Farm Fresh Challenge and earned the Best of the Bunch distinction. Texas City ISD has been offering locally sourced Texas foods and providing garden-based learning activities to strengthen our students’ appreciation for Texas agriculture.
“Participating in the Farm Fresh Challenge has a real impact on students, communities, and local agricultural economies,” Commissioner Miller said. “Connecting Texas farmers with school nutrition programs builds healthy habits that can last a lifetime. I am proud of all the schools that participated in this year’s challenge, and I thank them for the hard work they do to keep young Texans healthy all year.”
Texas City ISD joined 156 other school districts and charter organizations for the annual event, pledging to Eat Local, Teach Local, and Be Social. By serving healthy and balanced meals, offering agricultural and nutrition education, and prioritizing local Texas foods, the school has demonstrated dedication to the well-being of their students while recognizing the efforts of local farmers and ranchers to provide high quality food.
We look forward to continuting to serve fresh, local foods in our cafeterias!
