Free meal program will continue with weekly pickups starting Jan. 27

Free meals will continue

All students in Winona ages 18 and under will be able to continue to receive free meals, even as Winona Area Public Schools transitions all grade levels to an in-person or hybrid learning model. 

Students who attend school in-person at a WAPS school will receive free breakfast and free lunch at their school building. All students, regardless if they attend a WAPS school or not, will be able to request a five-day meal pack (which includes both breakfast and lunch) to be picked up on Wednesdays at Winona Senior High School.

Delivery of meals will end on Friday, Jan. 15. Families previously signed up for meal pickup on Wednesdays will be able to do so through Wednesday, Jan. 20. However, a new form will need to be completed for pickup beginning Wednesday, Jan. 27. The form is linked here:

Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 27, the five-day meal packs can be picked up at Winona Senior High School, 901 Gilmore Ave., at the following times:

  • 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Wednesdays
  • 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays

Students in the hybrid learning plan who receive meals at school may also request a five-day meal pack to be picked up on Wednesdays.
