Summer Food Service Announcements

Food Services/Menus

From providing nutritious meals that help students focus to creating an environment where safe, clean and comfortable classrooms help them engage in learning, Sodexo focuses on student well-being which directly impacts student achievement.

How Much Does Lunch Cost?

  • At James Lintott Elementary (grades K-2), Orin Smith Elementary (grades 3-5) and Chehalis Middle School (grades 6-8), all students are automatically eligible for free breakfast and lunch. This means one free meal per student per meal served. If a student chooses to have an additional meal or order a la carte items, their student account will be charged.
  • At W.F. West High School (grades 9-12), students must pay for breakfast and lunch unless their family has applied for and been notified they are eligible for free or reduced lunch (more info below). Breakfast is $1.90 and lunch is $3.30.

To view your student’s lunch account balance, log into Family Access in Skyward and choose “Food Service” in the menu bar on the left hand side. This page gives you information on your student’s balance, fees due, payments made and daily account of what your student has purchased. A payment button will take you to a portal where you can make a payment to your student’s account.

W.F. West students will not be denied meals if they do not have a balance in their student lunch account, but the cost of their meal will be added to their account and parents will be billed toward the end of the school year if they have a balance owed. Want to keep from being surprised by a lunch bill? Log into Family Access in Skyward and then choose “My Account” at the top of the page. You can opt in to receive a message if your student’s lunch account goes below $5 remaining.
