Free Lunch for the 2023-2024 School Year 

We encourage families to complete the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Application for school year 2023-2024. All complete lunch orders (i.e. that include 3 components: protein, fruit or vegetable, and grain) are free to all students in Massachusetts this school year. However, with consent from a family, the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Application may also facilitate eligibility for fee waivers or fee reductions in other areas, such as Bus Fees, Field Trips, or Athletic Fees. For more information, please view this document: Request to Translate and Frequently Asked Questions.

Please complete both steps to qualify for fee reductions or waivers:

Stay Tuned!!

***Free & Reduced Applications for 2024-2025 will be posted sometime in June.

 

Purchases of Snacks

We are not accepting cash payments for snacks purchased at the snack window in schools that have this option. Students may use MySchoolBucks for these purchases only.

To register for MySchoolBucks, you will need your child's student ID number which can be found in the Aspen family portal.

Funds may be deposited online (with a fee charged by MySchoolBucks) or by writing a check payable to the Westwood Public Schools with "Food Service" written in the memo field (we do not charge a fee for checks). You may mail checks to Food Service, Westwood Schools, 220 Nahatan Street, Westwood, MA 02090, or drop them off at the green drop box in front of the District Administration Office.

Food Service Collection Policy 

The Westwood Public Schools Food Service Department is a self-funded operation that relies on providing federal and state-reimbursable ("free") lunches to students. Meals or snacks that are not federal or state-reimbursable must be paid for by the student or faculty member. The School Committee's Food Service Collection Policy is being revised. Until then, to access the policy, click here.  At this time, students are always offered a three-component lunch (for example grain, protein, and fruit or vegetable) and are not given alternate meals under any circumstances.
