MPS will be transitioning from daily to weekly food pick-ups the week of Spring Break, March 30 – April 3. Our 20 original food pick-up sites will continue daily meal picks AND start their new weekly schedule. Please note: Friday, April 3, will be the last day for daily food pick-up.
For this week's daily sites, please click HERE.
Also starting Monday, March 30 MPS will be expanding to nearly 50 food distribution sites offering WEEKLY food pick up. Each day, up to 10 different sites across the city will offer food pick-up from 10 am - 2 pm, Monday-Friday. Each food box contains 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches for a total of 10 meals. Families are welcome to take ONE (1) box per child, per week. Food is FREE and available to any child 18 years or younger. Look for the yellow school bus at all MPS food pickup sites! Make sure your household has adequate refrigeration to store food. Supplemental groceries are available for families in partnership with The Sheridan Story.
