Families apply for free and reduce priced meals annually and their students receive benefits for 30 days into the next school year.
For traditional calendar school families who received free and reduce priced meals last year, the 2016-17 benefits will expire Friday, October 6.
WCPSS Child Nutrition Services asks that families be sure to apply now for 2017-18 benefits. The process is even easier now with online applications for free and reduced price school meals.
Families may go to www.wcpss.net/meals to determine if their student qualifies and then complete the new online application.
Families may also visit their school where paper applications will be available.
