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."

We're committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education and promotion, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience. In a healthy school environment, students will learn about and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices that can improve student achievement.

Free-or-Reduced Meal Application and Information

Children need healthy meals to learn.  Due to the public health emergency, USDA has given schools the flexibility to operate the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) in school year 2021-2022.  WASD will operate under the SSO and will provide a healthy breakfast and lunch FREE of charge to ALL students.  Households are still encouraged to complete and submit an application for free and reduced-price meals (see below). Free-and-reduced data is used to help maintain meal count system requirements, report to the Department of Education for funding formulas, and establish eligibility for other benefits, particularly Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) and Emergency Broadband Benefit. This packet includes an application for free or reduced-price meal benefits, and a set of detailed instructions. PLEASE NOTE:  If you currently receive SNAP or TANF benefits, you DO NOT need to complete this application.

The free-and-reduced meal application can be done using COMPASS.  COMPASS allows Pennsylvanian's to apply for social service programs, such as Food Stamps (FS), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Energy Assistance, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), etc., online.  Families can use COMPASS to apply for free-or-reduced price school meals only, or they can apply for other services at the same time (FS, TANF, etc.)

Here at WASD, you can apply for free-or-reduced price school meals online by going to or you can use the paper "Household Meal Benefit Application" if you prefer (below).  If you apply for free-or-reduced price school meals through SchoolCafe, you do not need to submit a paper application.  If you require help creating an account or completing the online application, please contact the district's Food Service Department at (570) 327-5500 x40104. Please do not contact the school where your child attends.
