Our Mission

Nutritional Services' mission is to provide meals within the USDA requirements to our consumers by working together in a respectful and safe environment.

Meal Prices

FCSD #1 will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The United States Department of Agriculture has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the seamless summer option of the National School Lunch Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through June 30, 2022. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19. Meals are available to all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Meal service is only allowed on regular school days per FCSD #1’s 2021–2022 calendar.

Free meal handouts will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at the following times and locations: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the central administration building located at 863 Sweetwater Street in Lander, Wyoming. The start date is on September 14, 2021.

Additionally, all FCSD #1 student meals that qualify as reimbursable will be free for the 2021–2022 school year. This excludes a la carte options, as well as non-reimbursable meals, and seconds. Under the National School Lunch Program, a reimbursable meal consists of a single-priced meal unit that offers all of the USDA daily required meal pattern components for each age/grade group served in the minimum required amounts.

Elementary – Breakfast $1.50 $2.75

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

For the 2021–2022 school year, Gannett Peak Elementary and Baldwin Creek Elementary have been awarded the USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant. The FFVP provides all enrolled k–5 students with a variety of free fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the school day.

The goal of the FFVP is to:

  • Create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices.
  • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience.
  • Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.
  • Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health.

Please see the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program reference sheet for more details about the program.
