Meals during Online Learning 

Meal service will continue for all MPS students during online learning, January 14 through January 27. Breakfast and lunch will be available every day that school is in session. Menus will vary by day and school. 

- For students learning from home: Families will have the option to pick up one breakfast and one lunch each day at the school where their student is enrolled. Meals can be picked up between the hours of 7:30 am and 1:00 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided and some items will need to be heated at home. Please contact your school for more information about where to pick up daily “grab and go” meals. 

- For students doing online learning at school: Breakfast and lunch meal services will continue. 

There will be no meal service on Monday, January 17 (Martin Luther King Day) and Friday, January 28 (MPS release day). If your student currently receives special diet accommodations, please contact your school to speak with the Food Service Coordinator.


MPS Culinary & Wellness Services

Our mission in MPS Culinary & Wellness Services is to nurture all students through access to quality food and active living. 
 
Our commitment to True Food means we serve food made from scratch with whole ingredients that support the long-term health of our students - physically, mentally, and academically. We work with local chefs to create recipes that are tasty and rooted in our community and we push the entire school food system to adopt our high standards for ingredients. We also support our regional food system, community, and environment by consciously seeking sustainable food sources, investing in small and local farms, and purchasing from local businesses.
 
We also focus on student wellness, partnering with staff, students, families, and community to set students on the path to full, happy, healthy lives. Our commitment to active living means students get opportunities to walk, bike, roll and be active throughout the school day. It also means opportunities for nutrition education that help students make connections between what they eat and how they feel. In school gardens and at our Education Farm, it means students experience the local food system up close and eat vegetables in all their glory. Together with our many partners, we seek to create a school environment where students are empowered to become their very best selves.
