Summer Food Service
FREE SUMMER MEALS for children age 1-18 will be offered at a variety of locations in 2017.
Meals are provided to all children, age 1-18, free of charge. Free meals must be consumed on site. Adults may purchase meals for themselves. Children do not have to be from the ISD 191 school district. The Food Service department of all public schools is self-supporting and receives no funds from the general education fund or tax levies. Funding for the summer feeding program is provided by the USDA. For more information, please call the Food & Nutrition Services Department at 952-707-2051 or 952-707-2030.
