MPS Launches New Summer Meal Delivery Program

Breakfast and lunch to be delivered at bus stops and individuals homes in Milwaukee’s 53206, 53205, and 53233 neighborhoods.

Milwaukee Public Schools is partnering with the MPS Foundation and Greater Milwaukee Foundation-MKE Responds Fund on a pilot program that will deliver free meals to children and adults at bus stops and individual homes in the 53206, 53205, and 53233 ZIP codes this summer. This program is open to any Milwaukee resident that lives within these neighborhoods, not just MPS families. Participants will receive free meal bundles on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during the months of July and August that contain breakfast and lunch for each day of the week.

Interested families that live in one of the specified ZIP codes had to pre-register online and were assigned a bus stop or scheduled for home delivery.
