HPISD took time this week to recognize its dedicated food service staff as part of Food Service Appreciation Week. Each day, food service staff serve up delicious food, smiles and service with heart while ensuring that growing minds have the fuel they need to succeed.

MIS/HPMS Cafeteria Manager Brenda Vardell expressed how proud she is of her staff. “Our staff is the best," said Vardell. "They work hard and are dedicated to their jobs.” She also emphasized the importance of having a well-balanced team when serving two schools on one campus. “Staff are always working to conquer new challenges. I couldn’t do it without them.”
As a district, we know these sentiments are shared by each of our school's cafeteria managers and echoed by HPISD Food Service Director Lynn Prichard.
