WISD is Participating in Federal Meal Program

September 28, 2020

Dear Winnsboro ISD parent,

 

    With a new school year underway, our students’ well-being and success remains the top priority at Winnsboro ISD. Our commitment includes ensuring your child can access nutritious food at school and other points in our community. The Texas Department of Agriculture has extended the Summer Seamless Program,  giving schools the option to continue to feed students during the school year.

 

    Starting September 28, Winnsboro ISD will be operating the Seamless Summer (SSO) Option. This federal nutrition program allows us to serve nutritious meals in our community to children 18 and younger and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old at no cost to your family. All Winnsboro ISD area children and enrolled students can receive daily meals.

 

    Winnsboro ISD will be serving meals Monday - Friday to remote students and children of the community at the Winnsboro Elementary from 10:00 – 10:30 am. No meals will be served on days that school is out.   Parents and guardians picking up meals without children present will need to fill out a form to display when they pick up meals.     .  

 

    In addition to school meals, you and your family may be able to access food through community organizations operating programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). These programs can provide additional support during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

 

Please contact the Food Service office at 903-342-5716 or email us at lunches@winnsboroisd.org for questions.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kisha Smith

Food Service Director
