PWCS School Food and Nutrition Services staff are ready to serve 20,000 breakfasts and 55,000 lunches on the first day of school, August 28. This year, students and staff will see an increase in the price of school meals by five cents. The nickel increase is due to federal directives related to the amounts school divisions are reimbursed by the federal free and reduced price lunch program.

The 2017–18 prices are:


Student: $1.50
Adult: 2.50


Student: $2.50 Elementary School
Student: $2.65 Middle School
Student: $2.75 High School

Adult: $3.45
