Changes to Meal Service Starting January 25

    As Saint Paul Public Schools transitions to in-person learning for some students, our meal service is also changing. Whether your students are learning in person or remotely, they can continue to receive free breakfast and lunch for the remainder of the school year.

    Meals for Students at Schools

    Free breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students during in-person learning at every school. This includes students who are on-site for in-person academic support. Menus are available at schoolcafe.com/spps

    For more information about how meals will be served and eaten when students return to school, visit spps.org/reopen.

  • Meal Box Pickup

    Meal boxes are available for any Saint Paul children 18 and under, plus those with a disability currently enrolled in a school program. Children do not need to present to pick up meals at these eight schools, and no registration is required. Please remember to practice social distancing (stay at least 6 feet away from other people) and wear a mask when picking up meals.

    MONDAY-FRIDAY (8 a.m. - 3 p.m.)


    Additional elementary and secondary schools will have meal boxes available for families to pick up starting Tuesday, February 16. Due to limited space at these sites, pre-orders are required. Please use this form to pre-order your meal boxes.

    Complete this form if you need to cancel, change your pick up location or number of meal boxes.
