News from Nutrition Services

Our school nutrition staff looks forward to welcoming students back to school! We will continue serving healthy school meals to fuel our students for success. During the pandemic, federal waivers allowed schools to offer free meals to all students. Congress let those waivers expire on June 30th, so now we must charge families for meals unless they apply for and are approved to receive meal benefits.

Families eligible for free or reduced-price meals must complete an application to receive them- all other students must pay full price for their meals. Our meal prices cover all food costs, as well as labor, supplies and other expenses.

2022 School Breakfast and Lunch Meal Prices:

Breakfast: Elem. $1.50, Middle $1.75, High $1.90

Lunch: Elem. $2.85, Middle $2.95, High $3.10

Guest/Staff Meals: Breakfast $2.50, Lunch $4.75

Milk $0.45

School meal programs nationwide continue to experience many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic. We will continue to do our very best to update our menus, which are found on the WSD website with nutrition information for last minute product substitutions. If your student has food allergies and requires a special diet, please be sure that a Dietary Request Form is completed and on file with the building kitchen manager and the building health aide by the start of the new school year.

You may access this form on the WSD website found here: .

Once completed please return to the kitchen manager at your school.

Wausau School District strongly encourages all families who believe they may be eligible for meal benefits to apply before the start of the school year. Families MUST pay for school meals until their application is processed and approved for the current school year. You may access the online meal benefit application here If you wish to complete a paper application you can obtain one from the main office at any school or the District Nutrition Services office located at 650 S 7th Ave, Wausau, WI 54401

We are required to annually notify families of the WSD’s meal policy pertaining to low/negative meal account balances. You can view the board policy 8500 by clicking on the following link.

Our breakfast and lunch menus can be found on the following link . All nutrition information regarding the menus can also be found on this link as well.
