Maggie said, “As a food service director, I direct and manage the entire food service program for Bridge City ISD. I ensure the implementation and compliance of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program following the rules of Texas Department of Agriculture and USDA. I develop policies and procedures as necessary to ensure compliance. I also implement ongoing safety and nutrition training to a staff of 36 as well as process the free/reduced price student meal applications based on the USDA income eligibility guidelines.  This allows students from qualifying households to eat free meals or reduced-price meals in our cafeteria. I am honored to be working for such a great district.”
