WCS Farm to School Program
WCS is participating in a farm to school program this year where we strive to have 30% of our products grown and produced in New York State.
We, along with other schools, will have one day in which everything served is a New York State product. Our ground beef is from a farm in Rexville, potatoes and vegetables will be from a Whitesville supplier, our daily milk is a NYS product, as well as our strawberries and blueberries. All products meet NYS inspection and requirements.
Help your children start the day right!
Mornings can be really crazy...the alarm doesn't go off...the kids don't want to get up...there's no time to eat brekafast before the bus comes...or they're just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will energize your child's day and provide them with a healthy start. A nutirtious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class, and has plenty of vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body. Read more...

Sponsors make summer meals a success!
When the school year ends, the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that children have
access to nutritious meals throughout the summer months. These summer meals bridge the nutritional
void that occurs when free and reduced-priced school meals are not available to brace kids’ academic a
nd physical development. All kids and teens ages 18 and younger (21 and younger for young adults with
disabilities) may eat summer meals, where provided.
Thanks to the efforts of NYS Education Department and 377 sponsors, over 3,125 locations were approved
to serve meals and snacks to children throughout New York State in the summer of 2018, including parks,
schools, playgrounds, recreation centers, public pools, day and resident camps, housing authorities, libraries,
and other places in their neighborhoods (NYSED, 2018).
Hunger Solutions New York acknowledges and commends the work that each SFSP sponsor accomplishes every year. By operating the SFSP, sponsors not only provide children with nutritious food, but also create safe spaces in neighborhoods, build community relationships, invest in child well-being, and advance the cause of alleviating child hunger throughout the state.
