New for 2018-19, students now have the option of purchasing a Yearly Meal Plan.

Educating our students about nutrition
Flik goes above and beyond by offering nutrition education programs that empower students to make healthy choices on a daily basis. By providing wholesome meals in conjunction with nutrition education, they are equpping our students with the tools to live a healthy life. Below are some of the featured programs for the 2018-19 school year:
S.E.E.D Program: Love Food, Not Waste!
The Sustainable Eating and Environmental Dining (S.E.E.D.) program was designed as our way of ensuring that we are engaging in positive practices that complement the Flik Independent School Dining's food and nutrition philosophy. The goal is to protect the environment and the ability for future generations to thrive. This year's S.E.E.D. program focus is Love Food, Not Waste. Through this program we will focus on many different ways the dining services staff can help the school and community live more sustainably.
Tastings is an opportunity for culinary experimentation and menu building, as well as for communication with students. Tastings are a great (and simple!) way to generate interest in the dining program by highlighting something special and to encourage students to try a small amount of a new healthy food or dish. The idea is that this exposure will lead to acceptance – and enjoyment! – of this food.
Our monthly Food Focus is a way of introducing culinary trends and traditions to your student. We’re sliding into the 2018 fall semester with #foodfocus sliders! Each month we will offer an assortment of #flikslides, perfectly sized variations of poultry, vegetarian and classic beef sliders!
Last year we went around the world. This year Traveling Flavors will be taking off on a road trip to give you some of the best All-American BBQ there is to offer! From Kansas City and the Carolinas to Memphis and Texas, we’ll be exploring the different variations of BBQ!
Healthy Foods Matter
Beans Matter and we will be #BeanDippin with a variety of dips and spreads that highlight a variety of beans to show that beans aren’t only healthy, they’re delicious!
