FREE MEAL PROGRAM

Attention Waynesboro Area School District Families:

To ensure that all children have access to nutritious meals during the 2021-2022 school year, the USDA has approved schools to serve FREE meals to all learners.

We are pleased to inform you that Waynesboro Area School District will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) in the 2021-2022 school year.  This program is available to schools and districts as part of the waivers issued by USDA on April 20, 2021.

The Waynesboro Area School District (WASD) will be providing FREE breakfasts and lunches for ALL children ENROLLED in the Waynesboro Area School District for the 2021-2022 school year. All breakfast and lunch meals will be free for all learners every school day, regardless of income.

Please NOTE: Menus are subject to change based on availability of products. Due to shortages in production staff to produce products and truck driver shortages to deliver products, we are experiencing many menu shortages and changes. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these challenges.

Attention: Please be sure to apply for free/reduced meal status, even though all learners receive free meals. There are many other benefits through state and federal programs that your learner could be eligible for, if their status is free or reduced. Please read: Household Letter for 2021-2022 SY.

Waynesboro Area School District First Choice Virtual Instruction Program (FCVIP) learners will have access to breakfast and lunch meal bundles starting on Wednesday September 1, 2021 and continue every Wednesday. Meal pick up will be from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm at the High School courtyard only.  Each child will receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches at Wednesday pick-ups. Meal counts will be reduced in weeks when there is less than 5 instructional days. A meal sign up link will be posted on the district website, with directions below. The sign-up link is applicable to all enrolled WASD learners the have chosen to participate in FCVIP. Sign up each week if you intend to pick-up meals.

Sign Up for FCVIP learners: Parents and/or learners will need to sign up each week to receive these meals. Click here to sign up for the Food Service Department, Free Meal Program. Sign-ups will occur Thursday-Monday by 12:00pm the week before the actual pick up Wednesday.

If the learner returns to the district school buildings as an In Person Learner, that learner will then be eligible for free meals in the building and not be eligible for Wednesday pick-up meals.

If you have any questions, please contact the Food Service Department
