St. Paul Calvary Church, 1427 Memorial Ave., will offer FREE breakfast and lunch to children up to the age of 18 years M-F from June 19 through August 18, 2023.  Breakfast will be served from 9-9:30 a.m. and lunch from 12-12:30 p.m. The first time the child attends, the parent/guardian will be required to register the child. Any allergies that the child has will be noted at this time.

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

We know that student success relies on proper nutrition. 

WASD works with The Nutrition Group to provide just that for our students. As our food service provider, The Nutrition Group serves healthy, balanced meals across the district daily to ensure that students are well-nourished to fuel their learning.

The Nutrition Group's passions are simple: people, food and nutrition. The Nutrition Group team – from sales representatives to dietitians – works together to customize menus and deliver the best products. The Nutrition Group provides WASD with its own resident food service director to oversee our meal program and manage its staff.

K-12 school meal service is at the core of what The Nutrition Group does: "We understand that students want tasty food, parents want nutritious meals and administrators want to make both groups happy while maintaining a balanced budget."

In a healthy school environment, students will learn about and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices that can improve student achievement.

Free Meals for Students

By participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Program, Williamsport Area School District offers free breakfast and lunch to all students.

Families of students enrolled in and attend district schools are able to benefit from the program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. However, households with children participating in the program will be asked to complete a Household Income Information Survey.

Students receiving free meals will not depend on families returning the survey, but it will be important to collect these survey results, as funding to support this program is based on documented need.

Free meals will be comprised of lean proteins, healthy whole grains, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Á la carte items, add-ons and snacks will remain available for purchase.
