    To pick-up the meals, simply drive into the loop in the high school’s parking lot.  Tell the food service staff the number of children you are picking up meals for.  Pop the trunk of your car while remaining inside.  Our food service staff will place all meals in the trunk of the car to ensure we are limiting contact and practicing safe social distancing.  

    Children who are 18 years of age and under can receive free meals.  All meals are free of charge and the program runs through the end of June.

    Please note, this program is available to all children 18 years old or younger.  There are no financial requirements to be eligible for this program.  All children that meet the age requirement are eligible.

    National School Lunch Program

    We do encourage you to continue to apply for the National School Lunch Program free and reduced meals if you believe that you are eligible.

    Applications for free and reduced breakfast and lunch are available here.  If a paper copy of the applciation is needed, please contact Barbara Downs at bdowns@wssd.org or by phone at 610-892-3470 x1305.

    Do not duplicate food pick-up at multiple locations.  This duplication is not allowed under the food program.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact Kaitlin Howell, Food Services Director, at khowell@wssd.org or call 610-892-3470 x2151.
