Caldwell ISD and Southwest Food Service Excellence join the First Lady's fight against childhood obesity. LET'S MOVE!

Caldwell ISD and Southwest Food Service Excellence 
work together to ensure that the students are getting the proper nutrition and exciting dining experience daily. Ultimately, our goal is to help children flourish. We do that through menus, promotions, and nutritional education.

The Child Nutrition Department offers free and reduced price lunches for those families that qualify based on income, food stamps, and other family situations. For more information or if you feel your family may qualify, please contact the Child Nutrition Office at 567-2604 or visit the Free/Reduced Application page on the left of this browser.

We value the comments of students and parents regarding the school menus. Please submit any comments by clicking on the link to the left for comments. Check out all the new links on the left of the page to explore more about the Caldwell ISD Food Service Office.
