Closed campus means local restaurants in at lunch

Texas district voted to allow outside vendors to bring their products to LISD high school campuses for lunch.

May 13—Students within the Lubbock (Texas) Independent School District will have new choices for lunch for the 2013-14 school year.

The LISD Board of Trustees voted Thursday morning to approve a restaurant carry-in program that would allow outside vendors to bring their products to LISD high school campuses for lunch.

Nancy Sharp, director of communications and community relations for LISD, said Monterrey, Coronado, Lubbock and Estacado high schools and the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders campuses will be closed at lunch beginning in the fall of the 2013-14 school year. Nine local vendors responded to a request for proposal, but Sharp said only eight made the cut.
