Child Nutrition

KIPP Austin recognizes that there is a link between nutrition and education, the food served in schools, physical activity, and environmental education, and that student and staff wellness is affected by all of these.

Student eating lunch

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.

Food in its most natural state is the healthiest for our bodies. All people deserve equal access to nutritious, fresh foods, regardless of the neighborhood they live in, or their income level.

community eligibility provision & kipp texas- austin

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 for the 2019-2020 school year. KIPP Texas-Austin now participates in the Community Eligibility Provision program (CEP).  This means each student enrolled in a KIPP Texas- Austin 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!
