PWCS Nutrition Meal Benefits, Menus and More!

The USDA waiver that allowed us to serve breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students since March 2020 is no longer in place for this school year. Students who attend a school that falls under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) will receive meals free of charge. Please visit the PWCS Food and Nutrition website,, to view a list of the CEP schools.

Families of students not attending a CEP school are encouraged to complete a Free Meal Benefits Application. Free meals are available to students whose households qualify under federal standards. The Meal Benefits Application is available in English and Spanish on the PWCS Food and Nutrition website. After your 2022-23 Meal Benefits Application is processed, you will be notified by email or US mail of your child's status. Until you are notified, you must provide your child with meals or money for meals. If your child was eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the 2019-20 or 2020-21 school year, they will receive free breakfast and lunch until October 6, 2022.
