FREE Meals for ALL
Beginning in 2022, the State of California adopted the Universal Meals Program which allows for district to offer free breakfast and lunch for every student, while maintaining quality ingredients and healthy options. Despite this new program, we sill need families to fill out an online meal application to properly allocate supplemental funding from the state and federal level.

The WPUSD Food Service department is also excited to partner with the Chef Ann Foundation.
The Chef Ann Foundation has partnered with California Community Colleges to launch the Healthy School Food Pathway Program, currently offering a pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship, and program that will support education and workforce development for healthy school food in California.
The programs will provide California’s Community College students, incumbent school food service staff, and displaced or transitional workers in related industries with education and paid hands-on experience in operating healthy K-12 school meal programs. They are currently accepting applications for the pre-apprenticeship with an application deadline of September 9, 2022 and the program starting in October 2022.
