For the 2021-2022 school year, students enrolled in Wylie ISD will be eligible to receive a free healthy meal every day at school. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals; however, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued extended waivers that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
Due to the Nation’s labor and supply shortages, menu changes may occur often. We will do our best to provide notice of menu changes as we receive notice from our vendors.
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.
