Minneapolis Public Schools Culinary & Wellness Services is providing FREE food boxes for ALL children*, 18 and under, through August 21 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All families are invited to participate in this program. Food boxes include items for seven breakfasts and seven lunches and are filled with fresh produce and true food ingredients that meet our district’s high bar for nutrition. 
Families can pick up food boxes at nearly 50 schools and parks across Minneapolis, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Find Food Pick-up Locations. To keep families and staff safe, sites offer contact-free pick-up. All youth are invited to participate in this program and do not need to be enrolled in MPS to receive food boxes. Youth, parents, or siblings can pick up one box for each child in their family, per week. Supplemental groceries from The Sheridan Story are also available while supplies last, for families to pick up with their food boxes.
