STUFF the TRUCK
Food Drive at Wyoming Elementary
Wyoming Elementary would like to support the Minnesota Foodshare Campaign by collecting nonperishable items for our local food shelves. We will be collecting these items at school from Tuesday, Feb. 21 - Wednesday, April 5th. In 2020 we collected 600 food items. In 2021 we collected 1,300 items and last year we collected an amazing 2,264 food items. Everything that we collect is matched by Minnesota Food Share during this time period. This year our goal is to once again STUFF the TRUCK! The empty Family Pathways Food Truck will arrive at Wyoming Elementary on Wednesday, April 5th, to pick up what we have collected. Can we STUFF the TRUCK?
All items collected are used to serve families in Wyoming.
Here is a list of items the food shelf is especially looking for:
Canned Fruits and Vegetables
Canned Meat: Tuna, Chicken, Salmon
Hearty Chunky Soups and Stews and Cream of Mushroom Soup
Whole Grain Pasta and Rice
Baking and Cooking Items: Vegetable Oil, Flour, Sugar
They also welcome personal hygiene and household cleaning products.
Want to give financially? Family Pathways has the opportunity to get more bang for the buck. $10 feeds a family of 4 for one week! Checks should be made to Family Pathways.

Food & Nutrition Department Back to Normal Operations
Beginning August 1, 2022, the Food & Nutrition Department will return to normal operations. What does this mean?
Breakfast and lunch will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. That means families will need to complete the meal benefit application to qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. Students who do not qualify for free or reduced-priced meals must pay full price for breakfast and lunch. Please see the 2022-2023 school meal prices below.
