WPPS wins dorothy S. mcauliffe nutrition award 


For the third year in a row, WPPS has won the Dorothy McAuliffe Nutrition Award for going "above and beyond by operating all available federal child nutrition programs and achieving exceptional participation in the school breakfast program." 

Originally launched in 2017, the award is named in honor of former First Lady of Virginia Dorothy McAuliffe, in recognition of her efforts to end childhood hunger in the Commonwealth. “Virginia has become a national model for ending childhood hunger because of the hard work and innovative approaches of this year’s School Nutrition Award recipients,” said Mrs. McAuliffe. “We’re thrilled to celebrate these school districts for their ongoing commitment to making sure students can access the meals and other resources they need to succeed.”
