Free meals will be made available again this summer to all children 18 years of age and under, and persons 19 years of age and over who have a mental or physical disability (as determined by a State or local educational agency) and who participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program (established for the mentally or physically disabled).

The Summer Food Service Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), begins Monday, June 15 and ends Friday, Aug. 28, 2009. Meals will be available at over 90 sites throughout the city, including community sites, recreation centers and schools. Meals may include breakfast, lunch, supper or a snack, depending on their hours of operation. Below is a list of participating sites, which are subject to change. For information about specific sites, call the Saint Paul Public Schools Nutrition Services Department at (651) 603-4950 or visit

Meals will be provided in accordance with federal law and USDA policy. This institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability.
