Hello Minneapolis Public Schools Families,
We are pleased to announce that FREE school meal boxes will be available to all families again beginning on September 8.
- Meal boxes will be available for pick-up Monday-Friday at 29 school sites across Minneapolis.
- Most sites will be open from 11:00am-3:00pm, and a few sites will have extended hours from 11:00am-5:00pm.
- Families can pick up school meal boxes from any of the 29 school sites.
- Please visit the MPS CWS website for the list of school sites and the doors designated for school meal box pick-up.
Similar to the free food box program that MPS operated in the spring and summer, ALL families are invited to participate in this FREE program and students do not need to be enrolled in Minneapolis Public Schools. Families can pick up one box per child per week. Each box will contain five breakfasts and five lunches and include fresh produce, whole grains, and familiar school favorites. Milk will be offered on the side by request.
At this time, MPS is able to offer free meal boxes to all children,18 and under, through a short-term waiver issued August 31 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. When this waiver expires, MPS will continue to serve food to MPS students, and we will keep you informed of all changes that will take effect at that time.
We look forward to seeing families at pick-up and continuing to serve True Food to our students.
