SLPS ENSURES MEAL ACCESS FOR STUDENTS
The Saint Louis Public Schools will be closed at least through April 3rd due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. For SLPS students, coming to school means so many things: learning, engaging in friendship, and getting a hot meal. Since SLPS has so many students growing up in poverty, as a district, 100% of the students are eligible for free and reduced lunch. As a means of ensuring that students have access to healthy food, and in partnership with the City of St. Louis and area charter schools, Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) and its food services vendor Southwest Foodservice Excellence (SFE) will provide free grab-and-go meals at 33 school sites throughout the city while the District is closed. In addition, grade-specific academic enrichment activity packets will be available for pick up at these sites. Read more here.
