Winton Woods City Schools “Nutrition is the Mission” bus about to go “on the road” to serve nutritious meals to the community.

Winton Woods City Schools is excited to continue its “on site” and “on the road” programs to provide nutritious meals to students in the community. Winton Woods Intermediate School will serve breakfast and lunch from June 3 to July 26 at 825 Waycross Road in Forest Park, every Monday through Friday, with the exception of July 4. Breakfast is served from 8:15-8:45 a.m., and lunch is served from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Everyone 18 years old and younger, will be served free of cost. Meals must be consumed on the premises, per U.S.D.A. regulations.

 

In 2018, the district converted a retired school bus into a mobile “Nutrition is the Mission” meal distribution vehicle to distribute free delicious healthy lunches and beverages to the youth. We estimate to hand out more than 20,000 meals during the eight weeks of summer to provide every child in our district with a nutritional boost for when school is not session.

 

The meal distribution vehicle will travel to four locations Monday through Saturday from June 3 to July 27, with the exception of July 4:
