Kalamazoo Public Schools on Tuesday launched its summer food program, Meet Up and Eat Up.
The program provides seven days of breakfasts and lunches to anyone 18-years-old and younger, or up to age 26 if enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled.
The program is a continuation of one the district has been running since the state went under stay-at-home orders in March. Many children don’t get to eat regularly when school is not in session.
