Every Meal Food Program

Weekend Food for Kids is a partnership between Eden Prairie Schools, Every Meal (previously called The Sheridan Story), and a number of generous community sponsors. This program provides FREE, culturally appropriate and shelf-stable food for children who don't have access to the nutrition they need over weekends and during the week school year is also available throughout the entire summer through our districtwide pick-up model.

Eden Prairie Schools partners with Every Meal in two ways:

  • School-Specific Programs: Food is provided during the academic year discreetly to children whose parents opt into the program (typically the food is snuck into backpacks while children are out of the classroom). Any family in need is welcome to participate, and can register by connecting with your school's social worker. These programs exist at all elementary schools.
  • Districtwide Pick-up Program: Parents can pick up food from Every Meal for all students and children in our district on Thursday evenings from 4:00-6:00 PM at the Historic Gym at the Administrative Services Center (8100 School Road). No registration required. This model is available year-round.

To learn how to contribute funds, become a sponsor, or access this food, contact Olivia Antilla, the Outreach & Engagement Supervisor, (952) 975-6968, oantilla@edenpr.org.
