There is much conversation happening right now about the Willmar Public Schools meal charging policy. Let us start by letting everyone know that Willmar Public Schools care about children. Our staff in Food and Nutrition Services work extremely hard to provide healthy school meals to children under all circumstances. As a part of the district’s commitment, a free breakfast is provided each morning for all children in K-8th grades. Sometimes we find ourselves in the difficult position of a student in a lunch line that does not have sufficient funds in their account to pay for a meal.
