St. Paul schools to again offer free meals
- June 8, 2013 - 4:58 PM
The St. Paul Public Schools will provide free summer meals to children at more than 75 sites across the city beginning on Monday.
Each site can serve up to two meals a day — for example, breakfast and lunch or a snack and dinner — depending on its hours of operation.
Meals are available to all children up to the age of 18 and to people who are 19 or older who have a mental or physical disability and participate in a public or private nonprofit school program for the disabled.
The list of participating sites includes schools, recreation centers, libraries and community centers. A map is available at the Second Harvest Heartland website. Parents and children also can seek site information by calling 651-291-0211 or texting their location to 612-516-FOOD.
The annual program gives children in low-income areas access to nutritious meals during summer vacations, and will end this year on Aug. 23.
