Muskegon/ Oceana schools offer free grab-n-go meals

Community News |Mar 30, 2020|7 min read

All schools plan to continue to provide meals for students the week of March 30. However, because the safety of our students, staff, and volunteers is our number one priority, distribution methods and schedules may change due to illness and the cold food selections may be more limited with lunch meats and cheese in short supply.


These meals are available to all children ages 18 and under and students with disabilities ages 18-26 with an active IEP (Individualized Education Program) who either reside in or attend the district. All private and charter school students can access meals through the district in which they live.


It is also important for families to know that they may have have access to additional food assistance benefits as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak and may be temporarily exempt from federal work requirements due to a recent announcement by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
