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 August 31, 2020, the U. S. Department of Agriculture has extended all Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) waivers through as late as December 31, 2020, dependent on available funding.  The move allows schools to offer meals to all children this fall to minimize the challenges of meal service during a pandemic.

Milk alone will cost $0.50 (fifty cents).  Faculty and staff meals are $2.00 for breakfast and $3.50 for lunch without milk and $4.00 for lunch with milk.

We make menu substitutions to the best of our ability for any student with a medically documented food allergy.

All remote learners can order meals by phone or email to the school the student is enrolled at.  Please call or email by 9:30 AM with the student’s name and grade.  Please specify if you would like the hot lunch or a sandwich lunch (sunbutter & jelly @ SMK and MS; PBJ @ WJSHS).
