MPS provides free summer meals for children in 2024

Children can receive free meals at select Milwaukee Public Schools sites this summer! All Milwaukee children age 18 and under are eligible. Free breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be offered but vary by site. Meals must be eaten on site and are not available to be carried off site. Families are encouraged to check the district schedule and access free meals for their children.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when school meals are typically unavailable. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well. Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender, or disability.

Parents or students can find the nearest meal location and check dates, schedules, and offerings at

We look forward to serving children in our cafeterias this summer!
