IMPORTANT — Meal Distribution Plan for 2020-21 School Year is Changing Starting December 2. Families need to sign up to receive meals. Visit our 2020-21 Meal Distribution webpage to learn more.
In West Linn-Wilsonville, our school lunches offer a complete selection of foods that students enjoy. The food we serve is made from wholesome, whole grain, low fat and low sodium ingredients, and fruits and vegetables are offered daily. Students are encouraged to come back for as many fruits and vegetables as they want, and many of the foods served in WLWV cafeterias are Oregon grown.Our lunch and breakfast menus are constantly evolving as local foods are in season and the tastes of our students change. West Linn-Wilsonville schools frequently host tasting events in school cafeterias to introduce students to new and nutritious foods while giving students input into their cafeteria menu. We do our best to serve students quickly and always with a smile, and we appreciate our students' and families' help to keep lunch accounts current.Meal assistance is also available for eligible families. To avoid paying full price for meals, please complete your Application for Free & Reduced Meals before school starts or before the meal benefit grace period ends if you had meal benefits the previous year.

The District has been approved for the federally funded, confidential program which provides balanced meals for children. If your family qualifies for the meal benefit program, your student(s) will be eligible for a fully balanced breakfast and/or lunch that includes a beverage each day.The Oregon legislature provided funding to eliminate the reduced price payment for School Breakfast and Lunch. For the school year 2020-2021, breakfast and lunch will be accessible at no charge to students who qualify for reduced-price meals.
Milk or juice by itself is not a covered benefit of the meal program and can be purchased for $.50 cents.
