New nutrition guidelines handed down by the federal government will affect foods sold for fundraisers during school hours, Ennis ISD’s food service director said.
David Gutierrez, EISD director of child nutrition, said the school’s lunches already meet the new “Smart Snacks in Schools” guidelines mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture. However, snacks sold by student organizations for fundraisers will also have to abide by the nutritional rules.
