As a partner in education, the White Oak Independent School District School Nutrition Program contributes to a successful academic experience and encourages a lifetime of healthy eating by providing each student with the opportunity to consume meals that are nutritious, appealing, and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.
Lunch Money Now permits parents to access their student’s cafeteria account via the Internet. It provides the ability to view the student’s account balance, view/print the student’s recent purchase history, and make deposits to the child’s meal account using a debit/credit card or PayPal. Viewing the student account is free. A convenience fee of $2.50 per transaction is charged to add money to the student account. (You may add to multiple student accounts in one transaction.
Meal App Now allows parents to apply for Free/Reduced school meals online.
White Oak ISD has developed a Wellness Policy that focuses on improving the health of our students. The policy was developed by the School Health Advisory Council that is comprised of teachers, administrators, parents, community members, and a district nurse.
White Oak ISD Charge Policy:
Charges in the amount of $7.50 will be allowed before the student is offered the alternate meal.
White Oak ISD will NOT be offering free meals to all students for the 2022-2023 school year since the USDA/TDA waiver is not being offered any longer. We will be participating in the National School Lunch program as we have in years past. Parents are encouraged to fill out a meal application that will be processed by our Food Service department. Approval letters will be sent to qualifying households.

Summary of the Guidelines for the Care of Students with Food Allergies At-Risk for Anaphylaxis.
We flag their lunch accounts with an Allergy Alert that pops up to notify the cashier of the food allergy so they can monitor the food tray to ensure the student does not have an item with the allergen in it. White Oak ISD food service is a peanut and tree nut free department.
