      Free and Reduced Price Meal Application

      • We strongly encourage you to complete an application for Free and Reduced Price school meals, as this will determine eligibility for your students to receive free or reduced price breakfasts and lunches.

        One application per household is requested.  An application should also be submitted whenever a job loss occurs or the household size increases.

      Traditional School Year Alternative Entrees

      • The Child Nutrition Department offers two hot entrees to all students in grades K-8 on most school days. Breaded Chicken is a second daily entree except when presented as the main entree. At that time we will serve this very popular entree only. Warren Middle School will serve breaded chicken as a first or second hot entree option.
        The Child Nutrition Department maintains our desire to avoid purchasing or serving any form of peanut. The department will not buy or serve peanut butter or peanuts. School kitchens may contain foods processed in a facility that also processes nuts before their arrival in the district.
        The Child Nutrition Department appreciates your support and interest. If you have questions, please contact your school’s Child Nutrition Manager or the Child Nutrition Department at (913) 684-1568.

      Pre-K and Kindergarten Students Meal Selection

      • Pre-K and Kindergarten students receive the menu during the first quarter of the school year. This assists in easing the newness of school to our very young students. In early October, we start assisting this age group to make selections to transition to the 'offer' process used with older students
