MPS provides free summer meals for children

Milwaukee Public Schools is excited for your children to join us this summer for free freshly prepared meals available at more than 50 sites. All children age 18 and under from any school are eligible (you do not need to attend an MPS school). This summer, meals must be eaten on site and are not available to be carried off site.

MPS BreakfastFree breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be offered and will vary by location. Stop by for a well-balanced breakfast including whole grains, fruit, and local milk. Lunches and dinners include an entrée, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and local milk.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when school meals are typically unavailable. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well. Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender, or disability.

Parents or students can find the nearest meal location by texting FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304. Check dates, schedules, and offerings on the MPS Nutrition Services page.

We look forward to serving children in our cafeterias this summer!
