Here's How to Get Food for Your Children While They are Out Of School

Did you know that if schools are shut down for an extended amount of time they are required to provide meals for children under 18? The Michigan Department of Education has put together an emergency food assistance program that provides meals to anyone that needs them. The program is called Meet Up and Eat Up and there are three ways that you can find out where your local meet up is and what times they are open. Visit, call 211, or text Food to 877-877 to find a site near you. Right now the program is funded to operate through 4/3/2020, but that will likely get extended if schools stay canceled. If your child needs a meal please use this resource and make sure that they stay healthy during these difficult times.
