Meet Up and Eat Up Summer Food Program Returns at Utica Community Schools
Posted on 06/29/2022
LogoUtica Community Schools is pleased to continue the Meet Up and Eat Up food program this summer.

Providing children with access to nutritious food beyond the school year and into the summer months has clear health and educational benefits. All children and teens ages 18 years old and under can receive free, USDA-funded, healthy meals at selected locations now through August 4. All meals must be eaten onsite.

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 may also take part in this USDA-funded program.

“The health and well-being of our students are consistently top of mind for Utica Community Schools,” Superintendent Robert S. Monroe said. “With a dedication to meeting the needs of all of our students, this program helps ensure that students receive the nutritious meals they need throughout the year.”  

During the program, UCS will serve meals each week at designated locations and times. No meals will be served on July 4, 2022. These free meals are for children only who are present and may not be taken offsite. The schedule of serving sites and summer meal menus for UCS Meet Up and Eat Up venues are posted online at uticak12.nutrislice.com/menu/.
