LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Department of Education has created an online map to help families find locations where meals are being provided during the state-mandated school closure.

It will be updated twice each day on the department's website until the closure is over.

The meals are available to all children at no cost. Up to two meals per day will be provided to kids up to 18 years old. Students with disabilities who are 18-26 and are in an active education program can also receive meals.

Parents with questions about the program can call the department at 517-241-5374 or email mde-sfsp@michigan.gov.

School districts across statewide have also started meal delivery and pickup services during the closure. Parents in need of the program are encouraged to go to their local district's website or social media pages for more information.
