MPS Free School Meal Boxes for All Youth

All families are invited to pick up free school meal boxes for their children. School meal boxes contain seven breakfasts and seven lunches and meet Minneapolis Public Schools Culinary & Wellness Services’ (MPS CWS) high standards for nutrition and quality ingredients. In every box, children will find school favorites, whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables. Milk is offered on the side, up to ten milk cartons per box.

MPS is able to offer these free meal boxes to all children, 18 and under, through a short-term waiver issued August 31 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (read the USDA press release here). After that, MPS will continue to serve food to MPS students, and will keep the community informed of all changes that will take effect at that time.  

For questions, please call 612-668-2820 or contact us.
