The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced the extension of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) waiver throughout the 2021-2022 school year. This will allow APS to offer FREE meals to all schools throughout the district without requiring parents to complete the household free and reduced meal eligibility application. This applies to Wesley students as well. 

Additionally, APS will provide FREE 5-day meal kits (5-breakfast meals and 5-lunch meals) for APS Virtual Academy (AVA) learners and children (ages 1-18) that do not attend APS schools.

Beginning Wednesday, August 11, AVA students and non-APS community children (ages 1-18) are welcome to receive FREE 5-day meal kits from one of the four curbside pick-up locations listed below from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm:

  1. Frederick Douglass High School - 225 Hamilton E Holmes Dr. NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
