Students can Meet Up and Eat Up free summer meals

The end of the school year presents a new challenge to some students. For some Flint and Genesee area youth summer can be the hungriest time of year.

With the annual closing of student lunchrooms comes the annual opening of Meet Up and Eat Up. Located in more than 1,000 sites statewide, the program is free to anyone 18 or younger, and to students older than 18 who receive school district services, such as disability support.

Sites range from neighborhood parks and community centers to organized youth programs, like church vacation bible schools and athletic team practices. Some programs even incorporate special activities, like YMCAs that deliver food and host exercise sessions.

Families can learn about the nearest Meet Up times and locations by dialing 2-1-1 for referral sites closest to their home, or by texting the word “FOOD” to 877877.

Meet Ups guarantee youth enjoy nutritious meals. A typical menu might include a chicken wrap, carrot sticks, and a side of crackers, served with low-fat milk.

Editor’s Note: The Summer Food Service Program is for youth under 18 years of age. Disabled persons, under 26 years of age, with a mental or physical dispensation from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) are also welcome to participate. 

The Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Program is funded by the United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Michigan Dept. of Education (MDE) Office of Health and Nutrition Services. To learn more visit: michigan.gov/mde
