Food Service Information

Flik Independent School Dining (FISD) will assume responsibility for the food service program at Regis Jesuit starting in August 2018. This will include the cafeteria operations in both buildings, the Steele Center Café and many of our special events and activities. They are also working with the Parent Community Association to determine opportunities to assist the athletic concessions program.

We are pleased that Flik ISD has a strong commitment to sustainability, healthy cooking from scratch and using locally sourced food whenever possible to bring the highest quality food to our program. In addition to serving great food, Flik ISD also wants to be involved with student education regarding nutrition and healthy eating. We are looking forward to the partnership with Flik Independent School Dining as they bring high quality food to our campus that supports the health and wellness of our students, staff and guests.

Program Details

Nutrition and Food Preparation Philosophy
Flik ISD's philosophy is based on the idea that scratch-made is best made. By serving food that is fresh and prepared from scratch, the food served by Flik ISD will have less added sugar, artificial ingredients, food dyes and preservatives that is often found in processed foods. In addition, Flik ISD will batch-cook (small quantities) through the lunch service to ensure all food served is fresh from beginning of service until the end. This also helps reduce food waste from overproduction.

Flik ISD also believes food and nutrition education is important for the development of our students. Flik ISD will be introducing monthly nutrition marketing that will introduce and highlight a new foods being served in the cafeterias. Additionally, the introduction of "performance meals" will provide athletes with daily offerings tailored to their unique nutritional needs.

Finally, a fun and seasonal menu will be created by our onsite chef at Regis Jesuit.

Sustainability Initiatives and Social Responsibility
Flik ISD understand going green is important to the Regis Jesuit community. Flik ISD’s SEED (Sustainable Eating and Environmental Dining) program is an industry-leading program that ensures product is available for generations to come. Not only does FISD purchase quality ingredients that are local whenever possible, the SEED program encompasses a number responsible purchasing initiatives including eggs that are always cage-free, poultry that is raised with the limited use of human antibiotics and milk that is always sourced from cows that have not been treated with artificial bovine growth hormone (rGBH-free). They have also partnered with the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program to preserve our ocean resources.

Enhanced Dining Experience
Flik ISD proposes to modernize the serving areas in both buildings. There is a huge opportunity to redesign the functionality and flow, therefore creating a more user-friendly space that is open and inviting. The retail program will include an introduction of new air screen coolers for grab & go items, beverages and healthy snack items. The entree stations will include thermal heat shelves, which allow for attractive merchandising and batch-cooking replenishment. The deli station will include in-house roasted meats and wide selection of toppings, which is always a student favorite.

Catering Capabilities
Flik ISD has provided the appropriate staffing to allow for the school’s daily catering needs and special events. They will provide a catering menu with a wide variety of daily and specialty items that will be creative, diverse and appetizing to meet the needs of our banquet events, team dinners, meetings and other special events. In addition, the on-site Chef is happy to create customized menus upon request.
