COVID safety protocols led to a different looking Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Culinary Competition this year. The event took place virtually with students cooking from their own kitchens.
Free meals for children ages 1-18
Free lunches and breakfasts for the entire week are available through the end of the 2020-21 school year. Meals are available for pickup at select locations and at school for in-person students when they are in school.
Parents will be allowed to pick up meals for children if they verify on the order form that they will pick up. If parents do not verify on the order form, then children must be present to get a meal.
All K-5 elementary students attending in-person classes will receive a free lunch for consumption during the school day. Please complete the meal survey (by clicking the link above) in Family Access to indicate the type of meals that you prefer your student to receive, or if you want to opt-out of receiving free meals. If you do not fill out the survey, your in-person student will automatically receive a main entrée meal (may contain meat) upon dismissal. You may revisit this survey at any time to change your option or selection.
Funding for free meals runs through the end of the school year. It is strongly encouraged that eligible families complete a meal application which provides more benefits in addition to free or reduced meals.
