Food Service

WMS provides free breakfast and lunch daily for all students - as a USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school.  The school helps fund this provision because we believe our children will be at their best for learning with good nutrition.   

WMS posts monthly Breakfast and Lunch menus here and on our Facebook page.  We have transitioned to paperless to help save paper and trees and to be more cost-efficient.  Printed copies of menus are available in the office.

WMS is a PEANUT FREE SCHOOL. Students and/or staff may have severe allergic reactions to peanuts and/or peanut substances. Please refrain from having any type of peanut foods on campus.


SHARED VALUES: It is the responsibility of Waimea Middle School to address the academic, physical, mental, emotional and social well-being of our entire learning community. We recognize that when wellness needs are met, we attain higher levels of achievement. We also believe that there is a link between nutrition education, the food consumed in our school, and physical, social, cultural and environmental education. We believe that wellness is affected by all of these. Whenever possible, we will provide nutritious, fresh, locally grown food that reflects Hawaii’s cultural diversity.


Families are encouraged to support student readiness to learn and their overall well-being by providing their children with a healthy breakfast and by ensuring that any foods brought onto campus meet or exceed current USDA Dietary Guidelines. This includes foods and beverages sent to school for birthdays and other celebrations. In addition, families are asked to help the school by encouraging their children to bring only healthy food and drink to school. Beverages containing sugar as a first ingredient and caffeine, guarana or taurine are not permitted. Please do not send your child to school with any type of energy drink.


The State of Hawai’i Department of Health provides free flu vaccinations or a comparable nasal spray for all public school students. WMS’ Flu Vax Clinic will be Fall 2022 (date to be announced).  Written family permission is required and forms with complete information will be sent home early in the school year.  This is optional but may help protect students from illness and prevent or minimize absences.  If you have questions, please call the school Health Aide, 808-313-7503.
