FOOD SERVICE

Welcome to Wayland Union Food Service, a partner of Chartwells and 2016 Chartwells Great Lakes Account of the Year!  Our food program offers healthy Breakfast and Lunch options for today's fast paced students.  All of our buildings offer numerous daily choices and have food bars full of fresh vegetables, fruits and other accompaniments.  

Our cafeterias offer many healthy food choices that meet and exceed the high nutrition standards of the Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act.

Our goal is 100% satisfaction of our students, staff and community.  Providing variety of choices is a key component in our program.  Elementary menus offer 2 daily hot choices as well as an option of a fun lunch or peanut butter & jelly.  Pine Street Elementary offers 5 daily hot choices as well as a daily chef salad or made-to-order deli sandwich.  Our secondary menus offer numerous choices such as made to order deli sandwiches, homemade pizza and specialty hot sandwiches such as burgers & wraps.  At the high school, the American Classics station features a more traditional fare while the Sono station highlights Mexican cuisine.  Our Mongolian grill is the focal point of the cafeteria featuring fast-paced exhibition cooking -- a community must-see!

Your child's nutrition is a priority.  We offer a Grade Specific Nutrition Program to help encourage children to make responsible choices.  Having the proper information is key and we do our part by assisting teachers in instructing everyone on how to reach our goal of Healthy Eating Habits.

Lunch Payments

You can make payments directly to your child's lunch account by using the Parent Portal. Cash or check payments can be brought to the school. Our computerized lunch system makes serving your child much easier and faster.  Features such as real time access to your students balances and account histories are available on the Parent Portal.
