Media Release - Summer Food Service Program
Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Washburn School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
If you are eligible to participate, contact Lisa Scribner at (715) 373-6199 ext. 202 by 3:30pm EACH Wednesday to request meals for the next week or to be put on the reoccurring list.
Meal Pick Up: Families may pick up meals between 11:00am - 1:00pm each Monday at the front of the Middle/High School at 305 West 4th Street in Washburn, Wisconsin.
Families unable to pick up meals may request delivery. Delivery will occur Monday mornings between 8:30am - 10:30am.
Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
