Remote Meals For All Students
** Beginning June 23, 2021 **

Wilmington Food Services will continue to put forward best efforts to feed our students during this time and will be preparing bagged breakfasts and lunches out of our kitchen at Wilmington High School. These meals will be available for any students, regardless of which school you attend in the District or not in district, and will be prepared in our safe and sanitary environment by Wilmington staff.

You may pick up all breakfast and lunches outside the Events Entrance at WHS (off of Adams Street) every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. We ask you pull your vehicle up to the curb, pop your car trunk or hatch and we will gladly place the meals inside your vehicle.

This is available to all children 21 and younger, living in Wilmington or in another community.

Please email any questions to Mary Palen, Administrator of Food Services at mary.palen@wpsk12.com.
