Summer Meals for Kids

Meet Up and Eat Up sites in Ottawa County

The Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Food Service Program was created to provide anyone 18 years of age and younger free nutritious meals during long school vacations. The program is available at locations throughout Ottawa County; serving breakfast, lunch and/or snacks during the summer months.

“Meet Up and Eat Up is a great way to ensure all children receive healthy and nourishing meals, even when school is out of session. This important program is free and open to all children 18 years and younger. We work with a variety of community partners to provide activities at many sites as well. It’s exciting to offer food, educational enrichment, physical activity and social engagement throughout the summer months,” said Amy Sheele, health educator with the Ottawa County Department of Public Health.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a Child Nutrition Program that uses meal patterns similar to those used in other federal child nutrition programs. The SFSP is operated at the local level by program sponsors and is administered in Michigan by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Office of School Support Services. To receive meals at a Meet Up and Eat Up site, participants must be 18 years of age or younger or (regardless of age) disabled. An individual is determined to be mentally or physically disabled by the MDE or a local public educational agency (school district or public school academy).
