WGSD Community Care Food Pantry
Dear WGSD Families,
AS December begins and many people look for ways to give to those in need, please remember that the Webster Groves School District has a food pantry for our community. The Community Cares Food Pantry accepts donations of non-perishable food, hygiene products, baby items and school supplies. You can find collection bins at each school. You can also make a monetary donation if you wish.
If your family needs food, you can request a box once a week. The amount in the box depends on the number of people in a family and will include meal starters, sides and snacks.
For information about the pantry, how to donate and how to obtain a food box, please click on the food pantry icon on the district home page www.webster.k12.mo.us.
If you'd like to help out as a volunteer, please call Autumn Rempinski at 314-329-4498.
Thank you for partnering with us to assist the community!

Adventure Club Has Openings for After-School Care
Webster Groves School District will have free meal pick up at Webster Groves High School this semester, as well as free meals at school for children who have returned for in-person learning. Meals are available for any child 0 – 18 years of age. Meals can be picked up Monday-Friday from 10:45 to 12:00pm. All meals will include that day’s lunch and breakfast for the next day.
High School pick up will be by Roberts Gym.
In addition to meal pick up, you can opt for free meal delivery, where you will receive that day’s lunch and breakfast for the next day. If you opt for delivery of your meals, you will be registered to receive meals Monday thru Friday until you contact the Food and Nutrition office to cancel your deliveries.
Please complete the survey only if you plan on picking up or registering for delivery of a meal. The survey results help us to plan accordingly for meal preparation and in order to reduce any possible food waste. You have the option on the form to select certain days for pick up or delivery based upon your students’ meal choices. You can find the survey form here: https://forms.gle/D8jwiM8dKfLDSVGS7.
Strict protocols are in place to assure the safest environments possible as the district continues feeding students. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask for the safety of our staff and students that a face mask be worn during meal pick up.
