The Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Food Service Program is available to children during the summer. It is a great option to provide children nutrition during summer months so they can return in the fall nourished and ready to learn. Michigan Department of Education provides a Locator Map, which allows families to identify the nearest site, including meal types, times and driving directions.
Or dial 2-1-1 from landline or cell phone.  Also, you can text "FOOD" to 877-877.
