Summer Meals: Meet up to Eat up

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Michigan through the end of our school year, an average day in the life of a SHPS Food Service Specialist varied drastically from the reality at the start of the year. Almost instantly, community members and other SHPS staff members graciously volunteered their services, supporting our Food Service Department while they prepared approximately 195,607 meals in  11 weeks!

Now,  as we look ahead to the coming weeks, we know that while kids go on summer vacation, hunger doesn’t. We are committed to bridging the summer hunger gap and ensuring children know that their schools and community care about their well-being all year long with special summer offerings. In addition to fighting hunger, summer nutrition programs support quality programming for young people by partnering with summer enrichment activities and providing the nutrition children need to fuel their day.

Summer Meal Program must meet federal nutrition standards, ensuring that children have continued access to the healthy, well balanced foods they receive throughout the school year. Anyone 18 years of age or under is eligible for free meals!

Be sure to look for the “FARM Bus” (Fun, Activities, Reading, and Meals) visiting our mobile sites bringing with it our traveling nutrition education, and fun giveaways!  This year’s mobile site food deliveries will be similar to our food distribution during the long-term closure. Each child will be provided with 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches at a time—other sites one breakfast & one lunch as noted. We can’t wait to see you!
