Food Is Medicine Summer Wellness Program Continues for One More Month

The Food is Medicine Summer Wellness Program will continue for one more month. A partnership between Minnesota Community Care, the US Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Department of Education, and Nutrition Now, this community-based effort is designed to reduce hunger in the City of St. Paul while kids are out of school during the summertime. Any family with children under the age of 19 is eligible to receive a free seven-day supply of meals. These food distribution events will take place from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday – Friday, through September 4, 2021, at the following Minnesota Community Care clinics:

East Side Clinic

895 East 7th Street
St. Paul, MN 55106
