At WLPS we provide healthy options for both breakfast and lunch available for our students. A well-fed body means an active mind! If you have any questions please contact our Food Service Director: Denise Kerrigan, 734-449-4464 x5001
We are proud to offer FREE breakfast and lunch to all children ages 0 to 18 – no qualification is necessary. Any family who has virtual students, children not in school (age 0 to 4) or remote learners may sign-up. You do not have to be a WLPS student or live in Whitmore Lake, so feel free to spread the word to anyone who may benefit. Breakfasts and lunches are provided. Meals are being offered through a grant from the USDA. All we ask is that you sign-up for each week that you wish to pick up food. All pickups are at the north side of Whitmore Lake High School from 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Food sign-ups are provided for families wishing to receive weekly bags for virtual learners (not attending in-person school), children ages 0 to 4 who are not attending in-person schooling, or any other reason a student is not in school. We ask that you sign-up for each week that you wish to pick-up food. Pick-up time is from 9:00 am to 10:00 am at the north side of the high school.
Lunch is one of the most important meals during a student’s day. Keeping the mind fueled with healthy food is important. If it’s not convenient to bring lunch, or if your student just wants a break from homemade meals, we provide a great option.
We invite our students to join us for breakfast before school starts. Every day we serve a hot entrée. Each meal includes juice or fresh fruit and milk. A healthy breakfast is a great way to start the day. Students can pick up breakfast on their way to class each morning.
NEW This Year
Our cafeterias are now cashless. We offer an easy and convenient way to add funds to your child’s account through sendmoneytoschool.com. You may utilize a credit card or your checking/savings account. This is a safe and secure way for you to make sure your child has the funds available to purchase breakfast or lunch. Please do not send cash or checks to the school.
Studies have proven that students who eat breakfast benefit nutritionally and educationally. Students who start their day with breakfast say they feel good, are happy and more alert throughout their school day. Teachers reported improved classroom behavior, improved attentiveness.
Students from lower-income families who meet criteria may apply for free or reduced-priced meals, which includes breakfast. Foster children, in some cases, may be eligible regardless of family income. Applications are distributed to all students in the first week of school. Free and Reduced meal applications are available in the office and online. You may apply at any time during the school year as financial circumstances change. You can apply online at LunchApp.com or apply using the documents below.
