Meet Up, Eat Up in Macomb County

The United Way of Southeastern Michigan combats childhood hunger through the Meet Up, Eat Up program. Get details on this program and where to find sites in Macomb County.

Many kids across southeast Michigan depend on school-provided lunch as their only source of a consistent meal — but that resource disappears when summer vacation hits.

To help curb childhood hunger throughout the state, the United Way of Southeastern Michigan offers its Meet Up, Eat Up program, which provides hundreds of sites where kids 18 and under can pick up meals during the summer break from school.

In additions, these sites also offer wellness activities, educational resources and health information.

“These sites are a blessing for parents,” Sara Gold, the program director of the Healthy Kids initiative at United Way has told Metro Parent. “Each summer over a million children visit our sites, and families can know that their kids are being watched over, active and well fed at the same time.”

Meet Up, Eat Up sites are typically located at schools, places of worship, nonprofit organizations, parks, government sites and more. You can find a summer meal site near you by calling the United Way’s 2-1-1 helpline or by texting “FOOD” to 304-304.
