School Lunch Program

The goal of the Wolsey-Wessington School District Child Nutrition Program is to provide high quality, nutritious meals to all students in our school. We offer breakfast and lunch daily. Menus are available by clicking the appropriate link on the top of this page.

Nutritional meals are a crucial component to a student’s ability to learn. School meals contain a variety of foods and offer students exposure to new foods. Nourished students will generally have better attendance, be more attentive and have more energy to cope with school-day activities. We invite parents to come eat lunch with students.

Free or Reduced Price Meal Applications are available for download at the bottom of this web page, or may be picked up at the school.
