As many families continue to struggle with the financial hardships placed on them during the coronavirus pandemic, community schools in Swartz Creek are offering some relief.
For the second year in a row, the district is organizing summer food distributions, offering a week’s meal to children across the region.
- Anyone 18 years of age or younger who is not currently attending school is eligible to receive a seven-day meal plan that includes breakfast and lunch items. (Any student who is currently participating in a summer school program is eligible for a three-day lunch and lunch package.)
- Persons with disabilities aged 18 or over and currently enrolled in school are also eligible.
- You DO NOT need to be a student or resident of Swartz Creek to be eligible for free meal plans.
- Parents are allowed to collect food on behalf of their children, in the absence of children.
- No proof of income is required.
Food distributions take place every Wednesday at the following locations:
- Peace Park in Gaines from 10:30 am to 11:30 am every Wednesday.
- Cage Fieldhouse in Swartz Creek from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. every Wednesday. Cage Fieldhouse is located at 4110 Morrish Rd. (Across from Meijer) in Swartz Creek.
The contests take place every Wednesday (except July 7) until the last week of August 2021.
Food distribution schedules are strictly observed and the availability of food may be limited by demand.
Food distributions are featured by the Swartz Creek Hunger Mobile Initiative.
