Godley ISD Child Nutrition

Godley ISD Child Nutrition received a $108,000 grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture to help with supply chain issues, according to an announcement from the school district on February 28, 2024.

The Supply Chain Assistance Grant helps school districts purchase unprocessed or minimally processed domestic food products after experiencing unanticipated cancellation of food and supply contracts, reduced availability of certain foods, unexpected substitution of certain products, unpredictable increases in food and supply prices, and other obstacles related to pricing and/or availability.

This marks the second grant for the district's child nutrition program, according to Lacey Manuel, director of the GISD program.

The district previously received an $85,000 grant through the Local Food for Schools (LFS) program to purchase farm fresh food and produce.

The LFS program supports local and regional food systems through purchases of unprocessed or minimally processed foods. This grant can help participating entities establish or strengthen connections to Texas farmers, ranchers and small businesses and get more Texas food on students’ trays.  The grant focuses on fruits, vegetables, grains and meat raised or grown in the state.
