Students receiving meals during pandemic from schools

NEGAUNEE/ISHPEMING — Students throughout the Negaunee and Ishpeming Schools now have access to free meals to help during the pandemic and self quarantine.

Negaunee and Ishpeming Public Schools have been allowed by the State of Michigan to continue providing meals to students in their school districts. The meals are free of charge. This is all in response to helping families and children who are in need of these essential resources during the pandemic.

“To provide them with a healthy meal is important because not everyone has access to fresh fruit and veggies,” said Calvin Attwell, Director of Food Services at Neguanee Schools. “So if we can provide that too the students and just to give them a little hope during the dreary weather out right now. Sometimes in the middle of winter having a fresh apple to chomp on brightens anyone’s day. So our goal is to feed as many kids as we can.”

Meals are available for pick up throughout Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at locations in Ishpeming and Negaunee. If you would like to offer help with donations or to learn the locations of food pick up you can call this number.
