Booster Pak Program
WDMCS is partnering with the Food Bank of Iowa and Booster Pak to provide food programs in our district. These programs are designed to increase a student's access to food on the weekends and school breaks when school breakfast and lunch are not available. The food is provided through Pack or Pantry programs in each building.
Here's how it works:
1. Each week, your student(s) will receive a sack filled with easy-to-prepare foods.
2. There is no fee for participating in the program. Families are only asked to provide feedback on the program by fillng out surveys sent home with their student(s)
3. The programs operate 8/24/22 through 9/30/23
To enroll your student(s) in the program, please complete the online registration form:
Please contact your school counselor or Booster Pak (email@example.com) if you have any questions or concerns.
