Federal Way Public Schools is dedicated to helping ensure scholars are well fed, so they are ready to learn. Starting September 9, 2020 school meal kits will be served every Wednesday, with one exception. Due to the Veterans Day holiday on Wednesday, November 11, meals will be served on Tuesday, November 10 at the same times and locations.
The recent back to school letter noted that students would receive meal cards. Due to a recent update from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), we will not be using meal cards until further notice.
Funding by the USDA, meals are available for FWPS students and children aged 18 or younger at no cost beginning September 9 through December 16, 2020.
