Breakfast and Lunch for Kids

We are now offering curbside meal service at 40 school sites, for all children 18 years of age or younger. Each site has pickup one day per week for family convenience. Students will receive a market food box with all of the components for 5 balanced breakfast and lunch meals that meet the requirements for the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs.

  • Meals will be provided free of charge to all students regardless of free, reduced or paid status eligibility.
  • Each 5 day box is about 12"X 9"X 9" in size and weighs just under 10 pounds.  
  • Milk will be available as an option.
  • Please remember to apply for free & reduced meal benefits during enrollment this year. You need to apply each school year.
  • Heating instructions can be found here.

What to know before picking up meals:

  1. Please use our pre-order form so we can plan ahead and be ready for you. It is encouraged, especially for special situations, but not required.
  2. You can pick up meals from any school that is convenient for you.

Tell me more about this program

MMSD Food & Nutrition has been working to fight hunger since the COVID-19 pandemic started last March and our schools were suddenly closed. Our emergency response was to provide breakfast and lunch meals for curbside pickup at 12 sites across the city, with four additional sites in coordination with other food access agencies in Dane County. Together, we were able to provide over 16,000 meals per week at these locations last spring.
With feedback from families, we had a bigger and better plan for the start of school in September that would help us to meet our goal of providing food for all children in need.

The improvements that we made include:

  • Increasing the number of curbside sites from 16 to 40
  • Providing a market food box with 5 breakfast and 5 lunch meals for “one-stop shopping”
  • Building in variety with a 3-week menu cycle for the market food box
  • Adding late afternoon curbside pickup on Tuesdays at our MMSD Food Production Center on Pflaum Rd
  • Piloting neighborhood delivery by partnering with Badger Bus to provide delivery service to high-need areas that aren’t within walking distance of our 40 sites

These results have been extremely well received and we are now serving over 50,000 meals per week this fall. Thank you to all who are participating and to our dedicated Food & Nutrition team.
