Summer Food Service Program

Free Summer Meals for Kids & Teens!

When schools are closed for the summer, families lose access to a critical source of food received through the National School Breakfast and School Lunch programs. Food Gatherers is the largest sponsor of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in Washtenaw County, which provides free summer meals for children and teens at sites located throughout the community. 

Meals are open to all children 0-18 years of age or persons up to 26 years of age who are enrolled in an educational program that is recognized by a state or local public educational agency.

The 2023 Summer Food Service Program was generously sponsored by the Michigan Department of Education, Toyota Research & Development, the Lake Trust Credit Union Foundation, and the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation.
