During the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) provided waivers to allow all children to eat at school at no cost through the USDA Seamless Summer Option program. Since April 2020, children throughout the United States have been able to eat meals at school at no cost to them.
Beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, the USDA no longer has the authority to grant such waiver. As a result, Weatherford ISD’s meal service will resume through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, operating just as it did prior to the Covid pandemic.
Free and reduced meals will be available to all who apply and qualify. All families are encouraged to apply for this program. Parents may apply at online by visiting Weatherfordisd.schoollunchapp.com or by clicking on this post.
