WCSD Expands Free Lunch Program and Nutrition Services Facility
The Washoe County School District says it will offer free breakfasts and lunches to all students at 39 schools beginning this fall, regardless of their family income.
The Nutrition Services Facility is in the later stages of a $10 million expansion and renovation, and the added space will help them as they expect to serve more meals with more students eligible for free lunches.
In the 2019-2020, 39 schools will have free breakfast and lunch for every student, no matter household income. The schools are at the bottom of this story.
A spokesperson for the district says they considered opening the building for "double sessions," meaning they would operate a day shift and a night shift in order to make the food needed. Expanding the building was one of the main priorities listed for funds from WC-1 in 2016.
