Summer meal service available
This summer the need for meals increased in Bloomington. In response, the City partnered with Bloomington Public Schools to provide approximately 100 meals daily for families in the community.
The summer meal program operates from Smith Park, 155 Park Avenue South, Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m., through August 21. Bloomington Fire Department members pick up and transport meals to the park, where Parks and Recreation staff distribute the food to families.
BPS is also offering on-site meal service at Kennedy High School, 9701 Nicollet Avenue South. The City has provided the additional support needed to serve families residing in other Bloomington neighborhoods.
Normally, Parks and Recreation provides free meals to the community through the Summer Adventure Playground program in collaboration with BPS at Smith Park, Kelly Park and Running Park. This year, because of COVID-19 and the closure of programs, adjustments were required in order to continue to provide meal service to the community.
