Welcome to Food Services!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.  

The Food Service Department is comprised of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition.

The Sedro-Woolley School District Food Service Department provides approximately 2,900 lunches and 1,200 breakfasts daily. Staff members are trained in food safety on a continual basis.

The Food Service Department is excited to announce the continuation of free breakfast and lunch meals for ALL students for the 2023-2024 school year. The continuation of free meals is possible through implementation of the United States Department of Agriculture Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP is an option for school districts that have at least 40% of students who directly qualify for free meals through a variety of assistance programs, including Basic Food benefits, Medicaid, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), McKinney Vento or Migrant programs.

With the continuation of CEP, the Sedro-Woolley School District will not distribute and process Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications.  To ensure that the other educational services are still available, the district will reach out to families who previously qualified for free or reduced-price meals through meal applications to complete a Family Income Survey. This survey allows the district to track income data for families that is used to determine funding levels for a variety of educational programs offered throughout the district. The surveys will be mailed to households, and can be returned to the school office or Food Service office at 780 Cook Road, Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284.

Please note that CEP allows the service of one free breakfast and one free lunch meal daily. If students wish to have more than one meal per day, they will need to have money added to their food service account online or in the school office and will be charged accordingly. In addition, milk is an a la carte item. When taken by itself, the charge is $0.60. Students can get milk for free by ensuring they select a reimbursable meal, which can include milk, fruit and vegetables. Students are not required to get the daily entrée.

The Food Service is looking forward to providing free meals again to all students. Any questions about CEP or the Food Service Program can be directed to the Food Service office at 360-855-3515. 

All meals are prepared to meet strict guidelines outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture. These meals meet certain caloric requirements and feature less fat, less sodium, and more fruits and vegetables. At a minimum, the School District is required to offer foods in the following categories:


  • 1/2 pint of milk

  • 1 cup of fruit and/or fruit juice

  • 1-2 oz serving of whole grains daily (8-10 oz equivalents weekly)
