Summer meal program continues in Federal Way Public Schools

Meals are available at no charge to any child 18 years of age or younger.

No child should go hungry. Children need to have access to nutrition all year long, including the summer months when school gets out.

Federal Way Public Schools is once again a sponsor of the federally-funded Summer Food Service Program for Children. With 61 percent of FWPS’ student population receiving free and reduced lunch services, programs like these are important for students’ health and well-being.

Meals are available at no charge to any child 18 years of age or younger. Meals are served at multiple sites across the district, and additional sites have been added this year. Thanks to the district’s partnership with Multi-Service Center, the program is now offered at Multi-Service Center’s Kent Family Shelter located at 23960 35th Place in Kent. Also, three new sites have been added when the

FRED (Fun. Read. Eat. Dream.) bus makes its way to Crestview West, Panther Lake Apartments and Enchanted Woods apartment buildings this summer.
