Spring has arrived in Minnesota and temperatures are rising! This is wonderful news for the birds, the grass, and the flowers, but it is not good news for our fresh food delivery in FREE Student Meals. In order to meet food safety guidelines we must keep food refrigerated until it is given to students and families. In order to do so we are modifying our Grab-and-Go Meal Distribution locations and times. Meals will now be served from school kitchens or refrigerated trucks parked at St. Louis Park Public Schools locations. We will no longer serve from apartment locations.
