We recognize that hungry children cannot learn. The first step is ensuring that all students begin the school day with a nutritious breakfast at home or at school.
Breakfast is available to all Wood County students FREE each school day. No advance registration is necessary; your child can attend every day or only occasionally.
School Breakfast is an ideal solution on mornings when kids are running late or parents have early commitments. Whatever the reason, if breakfast at home is not convenient, please take advantage of breakfast here at school.
The Wood County Board of Education announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
Summer Meals will be available starting June 13th – August 5th , with some sites having varying dates.
Please note that all sites will be closed June 20 and July 4.
The 2022 Summer Food Service Program will follow all regulations- including serving meals on site at the listed locations. USDA requires that meals will be distributed on site only. Students are welcome to consume and enjoy a meal during the times posted at each location. Meals may not be taken off site nor will be provided to parents for home consumption as we did in previous years with a federal waiver. Those waivers have not been granted for the summer of 2022.
For more information about the Summer Food Service Program, please call Hollie Best, Child Nutrition Director at 304-420-9631, extension 101

We are pleased to inform you that Students in Wood County will have the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at school at no cost through a program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 2021-22.The CEP was enacted as a result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and provides universal meal service to children in high-poverty areas.
What does this mean for your student(s) attending Wood County Schools?
Great news for your students! All enrolled students in the Wood County School System are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2021-22 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.
