Summer Food Program

When school is out for the summer, meals will still be in session from July 1 to August 7

Free, healthy meals for all kids up to 18 years old*

Through the Meet Up and Eat Up program, Utica Community Schools will serve meals to children each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at designated schools and community locations. 

Monday and Wednesday meals include two days of breakfasts and lunches and on Friday three days of meals will be provided.  Except at SACC sites.*  Meals are for children only and may be taken offsite to minimize social exposure.  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.

Please note that this program differs from the UCS Emergency Food Distribution activities.

*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 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.  UCS is an equal opportunity provider.
