Summer meal program
The Street Eats food truck enhances the existing summer meal program that offers kids free meals across the City. Many of the sites are providing meals/snacks five days a week. Times and types of meals vary by site and are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Check out which sites are serving the food program through the Summer Eats MN app, which can be downloaded for free via Apple Store or Google Play Store. Summer meal program menus can be viewed on the MPS website at nutritionservices.mpls.k12.mn.us/sfsp.
