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.
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.
