    Every Meal

    Healthy eating is so important for children. At Murray Middle School, we work hard to ensure students receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day to support their developing brains and bodies. We are excited to partner with Every Meal to offer a free weekend meal program to all our students.

    Every Meal is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships. They strive to make a difference in children’s lives by focusing on food gaps like weekends, school breaks, and summer when they can’t receive food in school.

    • Free for all families
    • No qualifications required
    • Students enrolled in the program will receive a 4-5 pound bag of nutritious, nonperishable food each week
    • Every Meal does not collect information from families; privacy is protected
    • Families may choose to participate in the program anytime throughout the school year
    • Families may choose from a variety of different weekend food bag options
    • Please contact Lisa Engelstad (, 651-744-2397) or Justine Revermann (, 651-744-7130) to participate or for more information
