Several Oakland County schools participate
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federal food program created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs. The SFSP, is known nationally as Meet Up and Eat Up, is operated at the local level by program sponsors, (such as school districts and community agency partners) and is administered in Michigan by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Office of Health and Nutrition Services.
Meet Up and Eat Up meals are free to children and teens ages 18 and younger who come to a site. Adults can also participate, but for a nominal fee which varies by site. Breakfast and lunch are served; some locations have snacks.
Program dates and serving times may vary. To view all Oakland County sites, visit https://www.oakland.k12.mi.us/school-districts/administrative-support/child-nutrition/meet-up-and-eat-up.
