Summer Meal Program

Important Information about Summer Meals

Washington Community Schools Sodexo Food Service is pleased to provide FREE breakfast and lunch meals for all children 18 and under over the summer.  

There are two ways that students can receive school meals. 

Congregate: students receive a tray and eat at school (for students who are participating in daycare, IREAD, summer school, or summer camps, including the YMCA, Kinder Camp, WC Cardinal Care, and Infinite Sports)

Non-congregate: families can pick up a 5 days' worth of packaged breakfast and lunch meals to take home. 

The Summer Meal Program will run from May 20 - July 23.

May 20 - May 31: OPEN TO THE PUBLIC - IREAD congregate lunch at Washington Intermediate served from 11:30 - 12:00. Use the main entrance. 

June 4 - July 23:  WCS will be distributing non-congregate meals out of the High School at Gate 4 between 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm each Tuesday. At this meal pick-up we will provide breakfast, lunch, and milk for 5 days for each child in your home. Only parents or legal guardians may pick up meals this year.

Based on USDA rules a child cannot participate and receive meals from both programs. So, if your child is eating lunch, breakfast, or a snack at their summer camp/daycare they cannot participate in the meal distribution that week. We will be using rosters from each camp/daycare to ensure families are not getting meals at both sites. You will be required to provide the name of each student you are receiving meals for. To speed up service, please have the name of the children you are getting meals for written down. 

You can opt-out of meals at this camp or daycare by contacting the camp director or the SFSP program director at If you opt out of meals at camp or daycare, you can then come through the line on Tuesdays.

Thank You for your cooperation in helping us stay compliant with USDA rules and regulations, which allows us to continue to serve meals to our kids for free!
