Free summer meals for children 18 years and younger


N-summer-food-program

Summer is about to get into full swing, and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is taking place again this year at Cedar Springs Public Schools. This federally funded program provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children (18 years and younger) in low-income areas get the nutrition they need throughout the summer months when school is not in session. Currently in Michigan, only 15percent of kids who eat free or reduced-price school meals have access to free summer meals.

Various schools, faith-based organizations, and nonprofits throughout Michigan provide free meals to children during the summer. Cedar Springs Public School has done this for several years now.

From June 12 to August 21, Free meals will be made available at Red Hawk Elementary, 204 E. Muskegon, to all children 18 years of age and under. Also eligible are people up to age 26, who are enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled that is recognized by a State or local public educational agency.

Breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., and lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The school campus will be closed, however, July 1-5.
