Food Service

Welcome To The Food Services Department!


Texas Leadership Public Schools is dedicated to providing the most nutritionally sound meals possible for our students. We acknowledge the importance of student nutrition and fitness and the role it plays in everyday student academic success.


We are excited to announce that Texas Leadership has joined the ranks of more than 300 school districts across 27 states and has made the decision to partner with Preferred Meals to provide food service for our entire district. With over 45 years of experience, Preferred Meals is passionate about serving nutritious, well balanced, and tasty food. All meals are kid-tested and approved and also meet state and federal dietary guidelines.



We will no longer be offering Grab and Go meals. If your virtual student would like a meal please notify the front office of your campus. You may bring your student to campus during normal meal times and they may go through the line to pick up their meal. Please contact Serina Marturano for any questions at serina.marturano@tlca-sa.com, or 325-653-3200 ext. 7023.

Join Serina Marturano, our District Food Services Coordinator, to learn more about how the Cafeteria will flow and function in the 2020-2021 School Year.
**Please keep in mind, there may be dynamics across the District that vary per campus.
We want to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we navigate the waters of COVID-19. Safety is our number one priority.
