Big changes are coming to school food service in 2023-2024!
PK-12 students will be eligible to eat 1 free breakfast meal and 1 free lunch meal each school day.
The federal government will cover the cost of the meal for students that qualify for educational benefits (known as free/reduced price meals). The State of Minnesota will cover the cost of students that do not qualify for educational benefits (previously known as paid students).
Families will be requested to fill out an application for educational benefits to help Westonka capture necessary education funds
Students will still use a PIN and go through a cashier line
Breakfast must include a fruit or juice or entree alone will cost $2.00
Lunch must include a fruit or vegetable or entree alone will cost $4.00
Kids that bring a bagged lunch from home or students wishing to purchase a 2nd milk will be charged $0.60. Milk is not free without the selection of a meal.
Adult lunch price will be $4.95 or as established by the federal government in July 2023
Be sure to stop by the Westonka Foodies booth at school open houses in the fall for more details.
