MAPS provides food services for children

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Area Public Schools is offering a summer food service program starting June 18th.

This program is designed to give children free meals if they’re ages 18 and under, or up to age 26 for those enrolled in an education program recognized by the state or local public agency.

MAPS has been exploring this idea for the past 3 years and MAPS is excited to finally put it into place.

“When the school year ends, a lot of the services the children receive through the school no longer exists over the course of the summer. One of them is the national school lunch program. We’re trying to provide a good nutritious meal for those students that may need something over the summer,” said Chris Collins, Food Service Director with MAPS.

There programs will be offered at Gravette Elementary School and Marquette Senior High School.
