    The USDA has announced a new waiver that will allow WFPS to serve FREE MEALS TO ALL STUDENTS through the entire 2020-2021 school year. This waiver applies to every student, every day (onsite learning days, offsite learning days, and Virtual Program participants). The waiver takes effect immediately. Funds that have been placed in your student’s account will remain their account.  Additional items served in cafeterias, such as second servings and ala carte items, are not included in the free meal waiver and funds are required to purchase these items.


    The WFPS Food Service Department and district is excited for this opportunity to provide free meals to our students and support our families during the pandemic.


    Students who eat nutritious, balanced diets are better prepared to learn and succeed in school. The Food Service Department at West Fargo Public Schools supports learning by providing access to healthy, affordable meals to students in each school building. Meals are designed to provide variety and assist in developing life-long healthy eating habits.

    All menus meet or exceed USDA guidelines, with age-appropriate meal patterns based on the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Meals are prepared and served in compliance with federal, state and local regulations.
