Washburn is a food box pick-up site Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Come to Door #3 on 49th St. We will be offering one food box with a week’s worth of nutritious, convenient breakfast and lunch items. Food boxes are free for all youth 18 & under, and all families are welcome to participate in this program. Over Spring Break, food box pick-up sites will be open three days only: OPEN Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: April 5, 6, and 7. Sites will be CLOSED for food pick-up Thursday and Friday: April 8 and 9. Beginning April 12 our hours will change to 10 AM till 2 PM.

Starting Monday, March 29, food boxes will contain 5 days of breakfasts and lunches. This change to from seven to five days worth of food will reflect the meals that in-person students have access to in school.

Starting April 5, snack boxes will return! Families will be able to pick-up free snack boxes, containing 7 days of snacks, alongside their food boxes. Snack boxes will pair protein-rich foods, like hummus and yogurt, with fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains for hearty, balanced snacks.

We are committed to ensuring that all youth (18 and under) have access to nutritious food. Food and snack boxes will continue to be free and all families are welcome to participate. No registration is required and youth do not need to be enrolled in MPS to receive food and snack boxes.
