Resetting Your Password (Revised 04/11/2014)

  • (04/11/2014)  If you click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Log On screen to have one automatically generated and emailed to you, you can expect to receive the email with your temporary password within an hour.  If you do not receive the email and have checked your junk mail box for it, please call us at 1-877-TEX-MEAL (839-6325) and we can reset your password for you.


  • (03/28/2013) A new feature allowing users to reset their own passwords has been added to TX-UNPS. Users who know their user ID but have forgotten their password should click the "Forgot Your Password?" link on the Log On screen to have one automatically generated and emailed to them.
  • (03/28/2013) Once a valid user name and email address is entered, an automated email will be generated and sent to the requester. This email will be from TX-UNPS Help Desk (squaremeals@TexasAgriculture.gov). Please check your spam filter if you do not receive the message.
  • (03/28/2013) The email address used for the forgot password feature may be different than that used in the Contracting Entity Applications. If changes are needed, the user will need to submit a completed and valid FND-101. The form is available from the SquareMeals web site at http://squaremeals.org/Portals/8/FND%20Forms/Program%20Forms/fnd_101_certificate_of_authority_external-combined-030113.doc.
  • (03/28/2013) Please call 877-TEX-MEAL if you need assistance.
  • When resetting your password, please remember that your new password must contain a special character. Some examples of special characters are % & $ @ * !
