WISD Summer Lunch Program

Since 2014, Weatherford ISD has been providing healthy, no-cost summer meals to children in our community who are 18 and younger.

This annual program kicks off on Monday, June 3rd and runs through July 19th. Registration for this program is not required and children do not have to attend a Weatherford ISD school to participate. All meals will be served and eaten in the cafeteria. Children must be present to receive a meal; no grab and go options will be available. (The requirement that students be present and eat on site is a USDA policy that we must follow.)
