Gunnison Watershed School District Nutrition Services offers healthful and tasty breakfasts and lunches at each school.  Meals are available for students and staff during meal service times only.  Lunch may also be brought from home.

Please be aware that each student and staff in the district has a school meal account, which is accessed at the point of sale with their 4 digit pin number. Manage your school meals account on www.Mypaymentsplus.com. Staff, contact kosborn@gunnisonschools.net to get set up in MPP.  The Free and Reduced Application is online at  https://frapps.horizonsolana.com/GUNW01, or complete a paper application (see Free and Reduced Meals application section). You can also pick up an application at your school's office. 

In 2021-22, breakfast and lunch are free under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program through the USDA. In order to receive reimbursement for meals, the District complies with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and other guidelines. Among other standards, the HHFKA addresses childhood obesity with nutritional guidelines including more fruits and vegetables, whole grains in place of refined grains, limited sodium and saturated fat, and no trans fat.
