VIRTUAL MEALS Program Changes

WINTER UPDATE

Effective: November 24th!

The "VIRTUAL MEALS" program will continue to be offered optionally as a FREE food resource to families in the WUS District that would like to participate. However, we will be adjusting our method of distribution going forward through the winter months.


Please note distribution schedule changes as well as distribution location changes going forward:


DISTRIBUTION SCHEDULE CHANGES:

  • TUESDAY, November 24th (instead of Wednesday, November 25th!); 11:30am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, December 2nd; 11:30am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, December 9th; 11:30am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, December 16th; 11:30am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, December 23rd; 11:30am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday, December 30th; 11:30am-12:30pm
  • additional dates coming January 2021


DISTRIBUTION LOCATION CHANGES:

Beginning the week of Thanksgiving, all VIRTUAL MEALS will be distributed ONLY from the WUS - HIGH SCHOOL, FINE ARTS CENTER (FAC). We will no longer distribute from the Pine Street Elementary location.


Additionally, we will no longer be providing curbside pickup due to winter weather approaching. Instead, parents/representatives are asked to enter the building through the FAC Main Entrance, wearing a mask, to pick up meals and then take them to their vehicles. Please plan accordingly for these changes.


All WUS families are welcome to sign your children up for these FREE prepackaged meals using the link below.


All ordered meals will be FREE of charge to all children 18 years and younger, regardless of whether the child is enrolled in the HYBIRD model, VAAC, or too young to be enrolled. All packages of meals contain 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches. Meals are distributed once per week for children to enjoy while at home on their virtual learning days.


Meal pick-ups will continue on a first come, first served basis, but if everyone who wants to participate signs up each week, there will be plenty for everyone...so please sign up!


ORDERING:

Parents/Guardians must complete the VIRTUAL MEAL ORDER FORM each WEEK for each STUDENT that wishes to receive meals. Forms must be submitted no later than THURSDAY night in order to be on the list for the following week's meal pick-up. This link will be turned on for ordering on Wednesday and Thursday, then turned off on other days to allow the Food Service Department time to order, receive, prepare, and package meals.


Note: Distribution of meals will occur once per week and will include the entire week's worth of meals.


COSTS:

VIRTUAL MEALS are FREE to all children 18 years and younger.
