From Staff Reports

Students who attend Groveton ISD can bet meals are going to be good and nutritious.

Child Nutrition Director Debbie Wilson and her staff of eight dedicated assistants make sure that more than 265 students eat a good breakfast and more than 400 enjoy their lunch. Wilson has been with GISD for 34 years working in the food service department.

“We work hard to follow state nutrition guidelines, while making it a favorite of the students.” Wilson said. “We try hard and fix things the students will likely o increase our participation.”

Cook Joyce Punch stated, “We’re here for the well-being and nutrition of the students.”

During the Covid-19 shut down, the school cafeteria prepared lunches for all the kids on the bus routes. They dropped off lunches and homework packets. 

The students in town could come by the cafeteria and pick up a grab and go bag during school hours. Also, the home schoolers are eligible to come by, even now, and pick up a “grab and go bag.”
