Domino’s Pizza is striving to be a part of the solution when it comes to promoting healthy, active lifestyles for young people in Stephenville. The Stephenville Domino’s store recently partnered with the Stephenville Independent School District (SISD) to provide students a more nutritious lunchtime meal by serving Domino’s Smart Slice school lunch pizza.

Domino’s Smart Slice is a white whole-wheat, reduced fat and reduced sodium pizza, which is baked fresh and delivered to schools. SISD is on the list of more than 310 school districts that serve Domino’s Smart Slice, a product specifically designed to meet the new USDA federal guidelines for school lunch.

“We have been providing school pizza in Stephenville for years, and we are thrilled to serve Domino’s Smart Slice this year,” said Laura Wolfe, Stephenville Domino’s Pizza franchise owner. “It feels good to know that we’re doing the right thing, assisting the school in getting ahead of the curve when it comes to meeting school lunch guidelines and providing the children in our community with a more nutritious option that tastes great.”

“Domino’s Smart Slice allows us to serve our students a nutritious option for lunch, while still giving them something they love to eat,” said Child Nutrition Director for SISD Mona Little. “Pizza is one of our students’ favorite foods, so to provide an option that is both nutritious and tastes great is a huge benefit for us. We are happy to work with Domino’s in taking this step toward encouraging healthier lunch choices for our kids.”

Launched three years ago, Domino’s Smart Slice was specifically designed to meet the USDA school lunch nutrition standards for calories, fat and sodium – with each slice featuring four grams of fiber, 24 grams of whole grains and an excellent source of calcium.
