Child Nutrition & Wellness

KIPP Texas knows that there is a link between nutrition and education. We believe that healthy children are the foundation of a healthy society and that well-nourished and physically fit children are better able to learn. Eating and exercise habits developed in childhood will affect our students’ health throughout their lives.

At KIPP Texas we provide freshly prepared meals with the nutrition necessary to fuel academic success while building lifelong healthy habits.

COMMUNITY ELIGIBILITY PROVISION & KIPP TEXAS

KIPP Texas Public Schools is excited to announce a change to its policy for serving meals to children under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. KIPP Texas now participates in the Community Eligibility Provision Program (CEP), which means each student enrolled in a KIPP Texas school receives breakfast, lunch and a snack at no cost, regardless of economic eligibility. We are thrilled to provide this program for your KIPPster starting this school year!

Local School Wellness Policy

Please take some time to review the KIPP Texas Local Wellness Policy. This policy outlines our commitment to serving nutritious meals and encouraging healthy habits among our KIPPsters.
