Summer food service program in Escanaba

By  | 

ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Every summer the Escanaba school district participates in a summer food service program that is administered by the Michigan Department of Education.

The program 'Meet Up, Eat Up,' allows kids in the community to come and get a free lunch during the day.

The program receives funding from the state, and purchases the food as they normally do during the school year.

"It's a good program. It's something that we are happy to be able to do over the summer and we hope it contributes to some of our kids having a good summer,” says Escanaba Area Public Schools Superintendent, Coby Fletcher,

This also helps kids form friendships and meet others in the community.

The feeding program has 4 locations that are participating at different times, including Escanaba Upper Elementary School, and Webster Elementary from 11:30 am to 12:30pm and Northern Lights YMCA and Camp Harstad from noon to 12:30pm.

The program will be offered until the tentative date of August 18th 2019.
