PreK-4 Distance Learning Family Updates

SPPS Meal Service

  • Meal Service

    Meal boxes will continue to be free for all Saint Paul kids through the end of December.

    Families can sign up for home delivery or pick up meal boxes for kids 18 and under in their household, whether they are enrolled in SPPS or not. This also includes people over 18 who have a disability and are enrolled in a school program.

    Meal boxes are available in two ways:

    • Home delivery: A week’s worth of breakfast, lunch and milk delivered to your doorstep one day a week. Registration is required. 

    • School pickup: A week’s worth of breakfast, lunch and milk can be picked up at five high schools Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Registration is not required.

    All of the details are available at in English, Spanish, Hmong, Somali and Karen.

    Also, please remind families to fill out the Application for Educational Benefits if they haven’t done so already. While this doesn’t affect the cost of their meals this fall, this information is vital in securing classroom funding.
