Saint Paul Public Schools Nutrition Services
The Minnesota Free School Meals Program provides all students with one free school breakfast and one free lunch per school day. While meals are free for all students, all families are highly encouraged to complete an Application for Educational Benefits. These applications determine how much funding your child's school receives for educational programs and support, as well as determining your eligibility for assistance programs like discounted bus passes, internet service and student testing and athletic fees.
Fill out the Application for Educational Benefits Online (available 7/30/2023)
