Food Services

Our Mission

The Ware Public Schools Food Service Department provides a comfortable and encouraging environment in which nutritious and wholesome meals are offered. A well-balanced diet is essential for growing children and teenagers, so we design each meal to include all major food groups. Our meals provide the nutrients students need to focus on academics and to perform their best.

 IMPORTANT LUNCH UPDATE     

As of October 9, 2020, the U. S. Department of Agriculture has announced the extension of flexibilities to allow universal free meals to continue to be available to all children and teens throughout the entire School Year 2020-2021. The flexibilities will allow schools and other community organizations to leverage the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to provide meals at no cost through June 30, 2021.
