WWPS Nutrition Services 2020-2021

school-child-holding-sack-lunchProudly offering nutritious meals to our students!

Many students rely on school meals to meet their nutritional needs. Meal service will continue whether instruction is happening in-person or remotely.

As we reopen schools, we will make meals available for all students during all phases. We look forward to serving you and making this a great school year.

USDA and the State of Washington have granted several waivers. Similar to last spring, they will allow us to serve multiple meals at one time (breakfast and/or lunch), meals do not have to be consumed on school site, and parents/guardians may pick up meals for their students. Recently, the USDA announced that they will continue to allow districts to offer "free meals for all", regardless of family income, as we did last spring.

U.S. Department of Agriculture extends FREE meal program

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) extended the free meal program through the 2020-21 school year to help ensure all children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, all meals will be free for all children ages 1-18 years. This includes children not enrolled in school. Parents and guardians may pick up meals for their children. 
During distance learning, Walla Walla Public Schools is handing out meals Monday through Friday at several school and community locations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The district will deploy two school buses daily from 12 noon to 1 p.m. at several bus stop route locations across the community. All meals are "Grab & Go” and include lunch and the next day’s breakfast. Please wear face masks or face coverings when picking up meals.
