*Meal service at Goodview and Winona Area Learning Center is open to all, but is served on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

WAPS will also be providing meals to the Family & Children’s Center and the Impact Center, but those meals are limited only to the children attending programming at those sites.

The free summer meals are offered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. While meals were free during the school year through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP), those programs end for the summer. 

The USDA and WAPS recognize the need in our community for nutritious meals when school is not in session. The WAPS summer meal program, made possible by the USDA, helps fill the gap. 
This institution is an equal opportunity provider. Please see the full USDA Nondiscrimination Statement here: https://waps.pub/3V5ECei.
