Welcome to Walpole School Nutrition!

 

COVID-19 Information:

During this uncertain time for our community, the Walpole Public Schools and the Walpole Food Pantry are joining together to provide assistance to families whose children may require additional food during this unprecedented period of school closure. 

Our joint goal is to support these families in the most flexible manner possible. Therefore, the Walpole School Nutrition Department working together with the Walpole Food Pantry, will provide any family who has a child or children that receive Free or Reduced Meal benefits the opportunity to receive free food. These alternative food items will be available in place of meals that would have been provided via the school meals program offering the added benefit of expanding a family's access to food. 

If your family is interested, please respond to the following email: wpsnutrition@walpole.k12.ma.us or call us at 774-315-5640 to let us know you would like to be aded to the list of families being provided with food packages. 

We recognize that for families of our Boston resident students, the Walpole Food Pantry is not a local resource. Here is a link to support options that are available in the Boston metro area. Click Here.

We are grateful for those who have reached out to offer assistance to ensure our community has access to food. While we do not need volunteers, there is an opportunity for community members to make a financial donation to the Food Pantry to support all the good work this organization does for our community. Families are welcome to donate to the Food Pantry by clicking HERE and scrolling to the bottom of the page to the “Donate” icon or by mailing a check payable to the “Walpole Food Pantry” and mail to 135 School Street, Walpole, Ma 02081.

 

 

 

 

 

The Walpole School Nutrition Program offers healthy meals every school day. All meals are planned by a Registered Dietitian with a focus on whole grains, fruits, vegetables and foods that are low in fat. Planned menus reflect the Nutrition Standards required by the USDA and Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. 


We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We believe good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

Walpole Public Schools in collaboration with the Walpole Food Pantry is exploring offering a BackPack Program during the 2019-2020 school year at Walpole Schools. The BackPack Program is designed to provide food to children that would benefit from supplemental nourishment over the weekend. The food is discreetly packed in the students’ backpacks each Friday afternoon (or at the last day of the school week), ensuring that students are better prepared to learn the following week. There is no cost associated to participate in this program. If you are interested in participating in the BackPack Program, please fill out the form found on the "Meal Applications" webpage listed with the other pdfs.
