Mehlville continues to provide meals to students during extended shutdown


Mehlville School District employees, seen above March 23, are handing out grab-and-go meals of breakfast and lunch to all children living in the Mehlville School District during the extended closure. The meals are available at seven sites.

Meals will continue to be provided to Mehlville School District students during the COVID-19 shutdown, during the extended school shutdown through April 22.

Meals will be available for pickup at seven locations Monday through Friday.

A new time schedule begins Monday, April 6. You can pick up meals at:

Serving from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • Mehlville High School (3200 Lemay Ferry Road, St. Louis, MO, 63125)
  • Oakville High School (5557 Milburn Road, St. Louis, MO, 63129)
  • Bierbaum Elementary School (2050 Union Road, St. Louis, MO, 63125)

Serving from 11 a.m. to noon:

  • Lemay 1 and Lemay 2 (Adworth Drive and Barracksview Drive)
  • The Vineyards (Daiquiri Lane, near tennis court area)

Serving from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m.:

  • Jefferson Townhomes (Tuckahoe Drive and Poplar Forest)
  • Casa Brazilia (Casa Brazilia Drive)

These meals are for students 18 or younger living in Mehlville School District only, the district posted on its website. Families are asked to remain in their cars. A Mehlville School District staff member will deliver a sack lunch and sack breakfast to your vehicle for each student present in that vehicle. Students must be present in the vehicle to receive a meal.

Mehlville High School is where the district’s food storage is located, making it the best location for preparing large quantities of student meals. However, the district will also be using school buses to deliver meals to those six additional locations. 

Voluntary Intradistrict Choice Corporation (VICC) students may access grab-and-go meals close to home through St. Louis Public Schools.

Meals are for any student who lives in the district under the age of 18, whether they attend Mehlville or not. Any student can get a free lunch and breakfast each day. Students must be present, and we prefer they arrive via car and remain in the car in our pick-up lanes.

Of students attending without their parents, the district said, “We will serve any student, while supplies last. Young students should be supervised and must respect social distancing.”
