Wichita Public Schools offers free meals for students
Meal distribution for students enrolled in MySchool Remote changing and expanding pick up sites
All students in the Wichita Public Schools are eligible to receive free meals through December, due to the U.S. Department of Agriculture is expanding its Summer Food Service Program. All children ages 1 – 18, whether eating onsite or through the MySchool Remote distribution program, will receive free meals. This includes families who normally pay the full rate or reduced rate. Families will not be charged for any school meals they have received for the first week of school.
The meal distribution for students who are enrolled in MySchool Remote online learning is changing. Families will no longer have to pre-order meals, but they will need to prove that they have children enrolled in MySchool Remote in order to receive meals. Families will receive a verification card when they pick up meals for the first time. They will present the card to school staff each time they pick up meals for the rest of the semester.
Families can pick up five breakfasts and five lunches on Thursdays between 5 – 6 p.m. at twelve locations while supplies last:
Chester Lewis Academic Learning Center, 1847 N. Chautauqua
Coleman Middle School, 1544 N. Governeour
Curtis Middle School, 1031 S. Edgemoor
Hadley Middle School, 1101 Dougherty
Hamilton Middle School, 1407 S. Broadway
Heights High School, 5301 N. Hillside
Jardine Middle School, 3550 Ross Parkway

Pleasant Valley Middle School, 2220 W. 29th North
South High School, 701 W. 33rd South
West High School, 820 S. Osage

WPS will continue to evaluate the program and may make adjustments as needed during the school year.
WPS families still need to fill out the free/reduced application because meals after December will be charged according to their student meal status. The free/reduced application also is needed on file for families to qualify for other free or reduced-price school fees. This application helps WPS receive additional state funding needed to provide resources for our students. To fill out the application, go to https://family.titank12.com/.
