Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Food Service Program
The Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Food Service Program is a great option for parents who are concerned about feeding their children now that school meals are no longer available. Children need good nutrition during the summer months so they can return in the fall nourished and ready to learn. You can text ‘FOOD’ to 877-877 or call 1-866-3-HUNGRY for assistance locating free and nutritious summer meals. Both numbers will help you find a Meet Up and Eat Up site near you. Again, text ‘FOOD’ to 877-877 or call 1-866-348-6479. Thank you and I hope you and your family have a fun and safe summer.
