MPS, Most Schools Plan Free Lunches Next School Year
Federal funding for this ends June 30 but most schools plan to continue offering them.
Milwaukee Public Schools and most private and charter schools in Milwaukee will continue to provide free meals to students despite federal funding for nationwide free meals expiring on June 30.
A majority of children in Milwaukee attend schools in which all students qualify for free breakfast and lunch through the Community Eligibility Provision, which serves low-income families.
If you attend a private or charter school and want to confirm if your school is eligible, you will need to contact your individual school to inquire if it is applying.
