  • Child Nutrition
    Summer Food Service Program
    The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. It provides nutritious and free meals to children 18 and younger during the summer months. School districts and other eligible sponsors may serve as summer feeding program sites.
    Seamless Summer Option

    The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) was created by the federal government as a summer feeding alternative for schools that already participate in school meal programs and wish to continue meal service into the summer.
  • Growing Successful Partnerships...through Excellent Quality and Affordable Price

    The purpose of the West Texas Food Service Cooperative is to provide regional school districts the opportunity to administer a fiscally-sound food service operation while providing appealing, nutritious meals.

    Our mission is to accommodate the needs and wants of clients within the parameters established by the Co-op, while complying with the legal requirements of the Texas Education Code, the Texas Department of Agriculture, and the United States Department of Agriculture.
