The food service program at Marfa ISD has some exciting things happening in 2016-2017 for the students and staff at Marfa, as well as parents and community members. Marfa Schools must follow the rules established by both state and federal government on menu planning and costs.  For more information about regulations we cannot control please see All parents need to complete an application for FREE or REDUCED price meals, or they will have to pay the full price for their children.
