School Meals Allergies Aware School Lunch Program: Windom has an Allergy Aware Program provided by the district’s nutrition center. This means that school lunches will be prepared in an allergy aware environment. Students who bring their lunch from home will continue to bring their own selection of food items. There will be a separate-Allergy Aware table in the cafeteria. Parents may choose to have their children with allergies sit at this table. We will continue to encourage student to not share food at lunch.

Free and Reduced Price Meals and Free and Reduced price lunches are available to students that qualify based on household income or participation in the MFIP or Food Stamp programs. Many students are directly certified by the MN Department of Education and do not need to submit an application. Students that are eligible for free meals based on direct certification will receive an eligibility notification letter from the Food Service Department. Applications are mailed to household in August regardless of the number of MPS School attended by students in the household. Eligibility notification letters are mailed to households once an application is processed.
