The school district's Food and Nutrition Department employees will serve the meals. MPS does not want any of our community’s children to go hungry this summer.

Summer Food Service is a U.S. Department of Agriculture Child Nutrition Program. It ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. The free meals meet federal nutrition guidelines.
