Community Food Resources

MTCS has been honored to provide nutritious meals for many students since school has been in Distance Learning. Meal delivery ends with the end of the school year, but we want to make sure that you know there are many ways to receive food in Minneapolis and we want to make sure that you know about them.

The information you need is right here.
