Child Nutrition Services

The Olympia School District Child Nutrition Breakfast and Lunch programs have received a lot of high marks for our use of fresh fruits and vegetables and organic food offerings. Breakfast is available at selected schools and all district students may purchase a variety of hot lunch selections or fresh fruit and vegetables. We provide free and reduced-price meals for eligible students. 

 

The Olympia School District will continue to offer free meals to all children through the 2021-22 school year as part of an extension of a federal program by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Schools throughout the country can provide children with continued access to free meals through June 30, 2022, regardless of families’ ability to pay. The continuation of the program, which was first implemented at the beginning of the pandemic, is part of the federal government’s plan to reopen schools safely.

Families are still encouraged to complete an application for free or reduced lunches, as eligibility for free or reduced lunches could possibly lead to future benefits.

   

Meal Account Refund Authorization

This form is intended for graduating seniors, students withdrawing from the Olympia School District and families whose students have qualified for free and reduced lunches and would like a refund of monies deposited.

 

For account refunds or to donate your balance, go to the Lunch Account Refund Form.

 

How do I get a refund for fees I have paid already to my child’s school?

Families that would like an ASB refund (where cards were purchased just for the spring season), a lunch account refund, or a different type of refund, please email Help-Business@osd.wednet.edu. In the email, please list the item for refund, the child’s name and school associated with the fee, and your contact information. Refunds will be made based on the original form of payment; credit card payments will be refunded to the credit card. Payments made by check or cash will be refunded via a check, mailed to the student’s home.

 

School Meals FAQ for Parents/Teachers

The Board of Education has given our School Meals program a dual mandate: to provide convenient, economical, healthy meals for our students so that they can learn well and to break even financially. Please visit this page, as we have provided answers to the questions we hear most often.

Wellness is a Way of Life!

The need for students to eat more healthful foods and get more exercise is getting a lot of attention in schools these days.  Over the last several school years we've been putting in place a number of changes to make our meals even more nutritious for our customers.  For example, all of the meals we serve for breakfast or lunch must include fruit or vegetable servings.  In addition, snack and beverage items sold during school hours must meet specific nutrition standards.
