Five Star Meals

Dear WSD3 Families.

We are happy to announce that children ages up to 18 years of age will be able to receive free meals through December 18, 2020. This will begin today, September 2, 2020.

The USDA is allowing the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) to be operated during the fall months while school instruction takes place, whether that's distance or in-person learning. This was the same program that allowed us to feed students in the spring and summer.

What does this mean for you?

  • K-5 - Meals will continue as normal at your child's school free of charge through December 18, 2020.
  • K-12 Distance learning, D3-My Way, home schooled children and any children up to 18 years old may come and get a grab and go meal at one of our secondary school sites from 12:00 to 1:00 on school operating days, free of charge through December 18, 2020.

All Grab and Go meals need to be ordered through the Grab and Go Meal Google Form.

For District 3 families we strongly encourage you to continue to fill out the Free and Reduced meal application to ensure that any benefits that your family will receive would be in place at the beginning of the second semester.

Refunds are available upon request or they can remain on your student's account for the beginning of the second semester when we return to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To request a refund, please call the Nutrition Services Office at (719) 391-3561.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

MEAL APPLICATIONS

A new application must be filled out every school year, students who were in Widefield School Dist. 3 on the meal program through May 2020 will have their benefits until October 7, 2020 unless an application is received and processed before the cut off date. New application benefits will be in effect as soon as the application is processed. Please have your application turned in before this date to allow time to process.

Lunch applications will be available in the Nutrition Services Office July 1, 2020, and will also be available in the schools when staff return for 2020-2021 school year. The online application process will be available July 1, 2020, you can access the online application system by clicking the link on the left "Meal Applications" .
