Feeding Children

Our yummy and nutritious meals and snacks are served to students through two programs:

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP): Offered in conjunction with the Minnesota Department of Education, we open additional dining sites in the summer to accommodate students while school is out of session. Every SFSP meal features farm-to-table, fresh produce.

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP): Offered in conjunction with the Food and Nutrition Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, we cook and serve healthy meals and snacks to children attending after-school and youth programs.

Testimonial: From a Mom

Jenny is a working mother with four kids. Their family relies on free school lunches during the school year. She is grateful for our summer meals served when school is out of session because, “It’s really good food, and helps cut down the cost of summer.” She takes home extra meals when there are leftovers, and says her children enjoy visiting with friends they wouldn’t otherwise see in the summer.
