Warrensburg-Latham CUSD #11 Food Service
IMPORTANT FOOD SERVICE UPDATES
1. School meals WILL NOT BE FREE FOR ALL in the 2022-2023 school year.
For the past two years, the USDA made it possible for us to serve all students free breakfast and lunch through “waivers”. The USDA has not extended those waivers for the upcoming school year, so we will have to go back to regularly priced meals.
If you think you will need help with meal costs, please fill out a Free & Reduced Meal Application to see if you qualify. These are available on the school district’s website under the department Food Service.
If you do not think you will qualify for free or reduced meals, please make sure your student’s food service account has money in it. You can send payments to school or pay online through the district’s website.
If you have any questions, contact LeAnne Terneus at 217-672-3081 or email@example.com
2. Due to nationwide food shortages, our school district may be impacted with unavailable items or last-minute replacements. Because of this, our menu is subject to change. We will do our best to provide you with menu changes as soon as we know they will occur. We appreciate your understanding and patience!
The Warrensburg Latham CUSD #11 Food Service Department is committed to providing healthy and well-balanced meals to your children. We continuously strive to offer a large variety of quality food choices in the cafeteria. We believe that healthy meals and healthy habits are essential to a student's success in the classroom and beyond.
