Weekend Food Program

Our Food

Every Meal is committed to using only GOOD FOOD – nutritious, delicious, and relevant – that retains the dignity of our children and families.

Weekend Program

Our Weekend Food Program is the core of our organization. It is our response to a need we hear frequently from Principals and school staff: “My students don’t have food on the weekends, can you help?”

Summer Programs

While our primary mission is to fill the weekend food gap during the school year, we certainly recognize hunger is a year-round issue. We work to serve children in the summer in a few ways.

Winter Program

Every Meal also works to expand access to food for our community over the winter break. Typically available from December through January, children and families can pick up Every Meal bags from several Minneapolis Parks, all YMCA Twin Cities branches, and additional locations.

Where We Work

We work right here in Minnesota throughout the Twin Cities and beyond. We aren’t restricted to certain school districts and work in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
