Grab & Go meals are available through drive-thru pick-up for students enrolled in the STPPS Virtual School and students in the hybrid model on days they are not on campus in person. Beginning September 30, the pick-up location for Grab & Go meals for eligible students will be the high school in the student's learning community.

Parents/caregivers MUST complete and submit a meal consent form for each child and select a pick-up location before picking up Grab & Go meals for the first time.

To determine the school attendance zone, go to the Bus Transportation webpage and type in the home address (without the city and state).

    • The menu will be posted on the website of the school selected as the pick-up location prior to the first day of school.

STPPS STUDENTS TO RECEIVE FREE MEALS
All STPPS students can receive free meals (breakfast and lunch) thanks to a waiver we received from the USDA. Both breakfast and lunch will be provided at no cost for students who attend school in-person, Grab & Go meals for students enrolled in the STPPS Virtual School, and students in the hybrid model on days they are not on campus in person.

These free meals are temporary, so families who would normally qualify for free or reduced meals must still complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application. The Grab & Go Meal Consent form is still required prior to picking up meals for the first time.

Any meal payments already made can be refunded or remain in the student account to pay for meals when the temporary free meals end. Parents can request a meal account refund (MyPaymentsPlus accounts) by submitting a Meal Account Refund Request form. The auto-pay function on your MyPaymentsPlus account must be disabled before submitting the form to Food Services.
