MPS expands its Stop, Grab and Go locations for school material, meal pick up

MPS coronavirus food distribution

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Public Schools announced Sunday, April 19 that it will expand its Stop, Grab and Go locations to include five more sites for parents to pick up materials for the rest of the semester and grab meals for children so no child goes hungry during the coronavirus pandemic.

MPS will operate Stop, Grab and Go pick up locations each weekday through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. This comes after Governor Tony Evers extended Wisconsin’s ‘Safer at Home’ order to May 26th, closing all K-12 schools in the state for the remainder of the school year.

In addition, MPS will continue its distribution of Chromebooks to students this week after launching its Online Learning Resources platform for students and families to learn remotely.
