President Barack Obama's middle class task force will hold its next meeting this coming week in St. Cloud, Minn.

The White House says it will be a town hall-style meeting Thursday focused on how the president's $787 billion economic stimulus package will help the middle class. The meeting will be held at the New Flyer of America Bus Co.

Obama created the task force to evaluate policies and recommend ways to boost middle-class families.

He put Vice President Joe Biden in charge.

Several Cabinet secretaries and other administration officials also serve on the panel.
