Meals For All Students

Wilmington Food Services will continue to put forward best efforts to feed our students during this time and will be preparing bagged breakfasts and lunches out of our kitchen at Wilmington High School. These meals will be available for any students, regardless of which school you attend in the District, and will be prepared in our safe and sanitary environment by Wilmington staff.

You may pick up all breakfast and lunches outside the Events Entrance at WHS (off of Adams Street) every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. We ask you pull your vehicle up to the curb, pop your car trunk or hatch and we will gladly place the meals inside your vehicle.

Please email any questions to Mary Palen, Administrator of Food Services at

This is available to all students, including students attending other schools outside the district, residing in Wilmington.

If you have any questions, please call Mary Palen at 978-694-6064 or contact me via email

Thank you,

Breakfast Is Available Before Classes Begin For Students 6-12

Did you know that breakfast is available for all students at school every morning? Studies show that a hungry student doesn't learn as well as a student who has started their day off with a healthy breakfast. Hungry students' attention spans are less than those students who are full and ready to learn. So, encourage your student to stop in the cafeteria for breakfast before they go off to their classroom.
