Welcome to FWCS Nutrition Services

High school students may automatically be eligible for free or reduced-price meals, if the household has a current food stamp case number.

Mission Statement

Nutrition Services facilitates learning by providing nutritious affordable meals and nutrition education for students, staff, and the community.


Nutrition Services will actively contribute to children's wellbeing by providing and promoting good nutritional choices and physical activity and by advocating for the life-long adoption of a healthy lifestyle. Through education, children will be taught the importance of adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and how it positively influences their cognitive development, self-esteem, and social and physical growth, both now and in adulthood.

Parent Participation

We encourage parent participation and welcome a visit to any of our school cafeterias. Parents can eat with their students by calling the school before 9:30 to order and purchase a lunch.
