The Woodridge School District Food Service Program is part of the Federal government's National School Breakfast and Lunch Program and Summer Food Service Program. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, several waivers have provided flexibility in providing meals to interested students and their families. At this time the waivers are expected to continue through June of 2022. Some additional recent changes include more whole-grain foods, more fruits and vegetables every day of the week, fat-free or low-fat milk only, reduced saturated fats and sodium, and no trans fat in the menus.
