Summer programs to help kids

summer program for kids

REGIONAL – Summer Food Service Program for children. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under or persons 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.

The meals will be provided without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. In the land of $5 lattes and restaurants to fuel every appetite, 14 million children are still going to bed — and to school — hungry. These children, who represent 19 percent of all kids nationwide, live in a food insecure household, which means that their families lack the necessary resources to buy food for everyone in their home.

Please contact 2-1-1 to see if this program is available in your county. 2-1-1 is a free, easy-to-remember telephone number that connects people in need with people who can help.

The service is for anyone looking for health and human service assistance options. Free, anonymous, and confidential information and referrals are offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Upon calling you receive one-call assistance from a trained specialist, who directs you to resources that will serve you best during your time of need. For more information on community resources dial 2-1-1 text your zip code to TXT211 (898211), or, visit www.211nemichigan.org
