Mustang Life

Food Service

Our Charlotte’s Mustang Cafe and the wildly popular coffee shop, Uncommon Cup, offer various delicious and healthy food options for students every day and are provided by Taher Food 4 Life.

We are excited to be serving the students and families of Houston Christian High School. Given the ever-changing challenges surrounding COVID-19, we want to ensure you that student and employee safety is our number one priority. Every aspect of the dining experience has been reviewed to ensure all participants are safe during the entire meal service. We have specific procedures and protocols that allow for adequate social distancing, elimination of shared touch points, proper hand sanitizing, and adherence to COVID-19 requirements for meal preparation, serving, clean up and disinfecting. Our staff will be wearing masks and gloves at all times when in the kitchen and serving areas and have completed required training classes on COVID-related safety protocols. All meals will be served in closed compartmentalized containers rather than students serving themselves from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Bar. 

We look forward to serving the Houston Christian community this school year.
