MPS Now Offers Free Dinners
School district expands free breakfast and lunch program. Anyone 18 or younger is eligible.
Have a hungry child in your house? Milwaukee Public Schools is here to help. While the district continues to operate virtually, it is expanding its free meal program. The school district added dinner to the list of free meals it provides to all individuals 18 or younger.
MPS began offering free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch on March 16th after suspending in-person classes. It originally offered the meals at 20 sites, but has now expanded the list to 50.
Meals are available from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with three high schools (noted below) offering an additional pickup window from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The dinner offering, introduced January 4th, is intended to be heated before serving.
A family member may pick up meals for children and the children are not required to be present. Families with special dietary needs can submit a request form to the district.
MPS reports that 82% of its approximately 75,000 students live in poverty.
