AISD Food Service Star: Claudia Hernandez

We are excited to announce Claudia Hernandez, Food Production Specialist IV at Akins High School as this week’s Food Service Star. 

Food Service Star recognizes employees who go above and beyond their daily job requirements to ensure their kitchen is providing nutritious, appetizing meals that promote health, well-being and learning.

Claudia has been with Austin ISD for 16 years.  With the help of Claudia’s leadership, the Akins café team was the first high school in the district to launch Breakfast in the Classroom, where they are now preparing and delivering over 1,500 healthy meals each morning.

When asked what she enjoys best about her job, Claudia says everything!  Claudia’s favorite school lunch menu items are the tasty tacos served each week on Taco Tuesdays. Outside of work, Claudia enjoys going on road trips with her family.  The best advice that Claudia has ever received is demonstrated in her work each day, “Be positive!” 

Congratulations Claudia on being the latest Austin ISD Food Service Star!
