Marquette Summer Food Service Program begins June 17

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Marquette Area Public Schools is gearing up for the second year of their children's Summer Food Service Program.

Superintendent Bill Saunders says breakfast and lunch will be available to all community members, with both meals available at Marquette Senior High School, and lunch available at Graveraet Elementary. Breakfast will run from 8 to 9 a.m., and lunch will be available from 12 to 1 p.m.

Starting June 17, children 18 years and under will be provided free food, while adults age 18 to 26 will qualify for a reduced rate meal.

"Part of the marketing and what we're trying to do is to let the community know this is a free service for them. They can drop in and have lunch any time, and we would encourage that, especially if they need a free lunch," says Saunders.

Saunders says the federally funded program will provide high quality meals, such as lasagna and tacos.

You do not need to enroll in the program or be a Marquette-area student to get a meal.

The program will end on August 16. More details can be found at
