Providing nearly 1,750,000 meals to more than 18,400 SoWashCo Schools students every year with the help of over 140 employees.
Free Breakfast and Lunch
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved South Washington County Schools to provide free breakfast and lunch for enrolled students for the 2021-22 school year. Paperwork is not required to receive free meals.
Free lunches include a regular entree menu selection and provided sides. Ala carte items including milk, bottled water, second entrees and extras will be available for purchase.
When federal funding runs out, meals will return to being charged based on eligibility. If you qualify, please be sure to complete the application for educational benefits and free and reduced price meals to provide funding for all students, receive additional benefits and be prepared for when regular meal prices resume.
Food Shortages and Menu Changes
Due to nationwide shortages of certain food items, SoWashCo Schools menus may not accurately reflect what will be served that day. Schools will continue to offer nutritious meals to students each day. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Wellness Committee works to assure a school environment that promotes and enhances students’ health, wellbeing, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.
This is done through:
- Increasing awareness of the SoWashCo Schools wellness policy throughout the school district and community.
- Assessing implementation in our schools and working towards continuous improvement.
- Promoting student health and wellbeing in our schools and the community.
The Wellness Committee meets 3-4 times per-year.
