FWPS to provide free meals for kids this summer

From June 29 through Aug. 10, parents can pick up five days’ worth of meals every Monday.

Federal Way Public Schools will continue providing nutrition for kids 18 and younger with free summer meals.

The free meal program runs from Monday, June 29 through Monday, Aug. 10.

Every Monday of the program, parents may pick up a week’s worth of free meals (five breakfasts and five lunches) for their children. Kids do not need to be present for meal pickup.

Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), “grab and go” meals are available for FWPS scholars and children ages 18 or younger at no cost.

Meals will be available at 13 sites across the district. Times, dates and locations can be found on the district’s website.

Free summer meals program information

  • Meal pick up will occur on Mondays only.
  • All 10 meals will be provided in one grocery bag and one small box to ease transportation.
  • The meals will come with a five-day menu to ensure nourishment is provided for all five days.
  • Parents may pick up meals for their children — children do not need to be present.
