Welcome to the Lunch Program at GWCS!
GWCS is proud to be a part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) offering nutritious meals through our partnership with Lintons Food Service Management.
GWCS uses the application "Lunch Time", for school lunch ordering. The Lunch Time application has features that allows families to pay in advance, and order one month at a time right through their site. Families can track purchases, create reminders and set up automatic payments.
All families will need to create an account in our new Lunch Time system and fill out an online application. Information on how to set up an account was sent to families in July and must be completed by August 11th.
Registering a lunch account is important as it allows families the ability to purchase lunch and also qualifies families for free and/or reduced lunch. This process is required as the previous Pandemic program where all students qualified for free lunch is now over.

All SFAs must inform families about the availability and location of free meals for students via the Summer Food Service Program. Sponsors are required conduct SFSP outreach before the end of the academic school year to ensure that eligible families are informed of the availability and location of SFSP meals. This is required even if the SFA is not participating in the Summer Food Program.
Schools may fulfill this requirement through postings on the school's website, Robo calls, flyers or other methods that notify the community of locations of summer meal sites. A sample promotional flyer is available on the United States Department of Agriculture at https://www.fns.usda.gov/sfsp/raise-awareness
