FREE School Meals for ALL Through December
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued a nationwide waiver, allowing Wylie ISD to offer FREE meals at no charge through December 2020 at all school campuses and two curbside pickup locations.
Beginning on Monday, October 5, 2020 through December 18, 2020 (or while USDA funds are available), Wylie ISD Student Nutrition Department will provide FREE meals at no charge to ALL students as part of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program sponsored by the USDA and the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).
Free breakfast and lunch will be available for in-person leaners in the school cafeteria and remote learners through the curbside pickup at the following two locations: Groves Elementary School and Hartman Elementary School from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. All children 18 years or younger are eligible for the curbside pickup meals at no charge. Documentation providing guardianship is required if a parent picks up meals without a student present: student ID, student ID number, report card, Skyward Family Access enrollment page, or birth certificate.
A la carte items, are not included with the free breakfast or lunch meal, and will be available for purchase in school cafeteria. Meal charges incurred before Monday, October 5th, will still be owed as an outstanding balance.
The Student Nutrition Department encourages families to continue to submit meal application for Free and Reduced Meal Program, so that qualifying students will still receive meal benefits after December 18, 2020, or when USDA funds are no longer available.
The Wylie ISD Student Nutrition Department believes it takes a team to educate a child. We are an active partner in the Wylie ISD team. We are dedicated to enhancing your student’s academic performance while meeting or exceeding all state and federal government guidelines. Our goal and promise are to provide the best customer care while serving safe, nutritious, quality meals and encouraging students to develop the life-long skills and knowledge to make healthy food choices.
Our breakfast and lunch programs are designed to provide nutritious meals for growing children. Breakfast is available at all schools, and all District students may purchase a variety of hot lunch selections or fresh salads. Our breakfast meal provides one quarter of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for children, and lunch provides one third of the RDA. The Nutrition Services Department has actively taken steps to reduce the fat content of school meals to 30 percent or less, as recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
We thank you for allowing us to serve your children. If you have any questions, please contact us at 972.429.2330.
