  • Westonka Foodies School Meal Account Balances

     


    Year-End Remaining Meal Account Balances
    Balances remaining in a student’s account at the end of the school year will carry over to the next school year. If the student moves to a new building, the balance will transfer. We encourage parents to check balances before school starts to ensure that there is enough money in the account. Westonka Foodies will transfer funds between siblings to clear any negative meal accounts.


    Graduating Seniors
    Fund balances of graduating seniors will be automatically transferred to a sibling meal account within the district. If no sibling is enrolled in the district, please contact Food & Nutrition Services to request a refund or to donate the remaining meal account balance to Westonka Foodies Angel Account helping families that need a little help paying for milk, etc.


    Refunds of $10 or Greater (School Meal Accounts)
    Email your request to baileyd@westonka.k12.mn.us.  Requests for meal account refunds should be submitted by Monday, June 7, 2021 (2:00 pm).


    Meal Account Purchase Histories 

    All customer purchase histories for school year 20-21 will be removed the week beginning June 7, 2021.


    Please contact the Westonka Foodies office with questions 952-491-8088 or baileyd@westonka.k12.mn.us.
