Both Roseville and St. Paul School Districts will be providing breakfast and lunch for students who need meals. Students and families should be receiving an email regarding this, but if you are aware of families who may not have access to this information, please spread the word. Each district has specific information on their websites regarding meal locations and deliveries. We thank the school districts and our partner, Every Meal (formerly The Sheridan Story), for working to ensure kids still have access to healthy meals during this time.
