MAPS Nutrition Services
Food Service Program
With support from the United States Department of Agriculture and Michigan Department of Education, Manistee Area Public Schools is grateful to be able to extend free meals for all children 18 and younger in our Manistee community through the end of the 2020-2021 school year in June 2021. Once funding is no longer available, our Food Service Department will return to the National School Lunch Program parameters for public school food service.
Throughout the 2020/21 school year, MAPS will be serving all in-person learners free breakfast and lunch every school day at each building in the district. We will also be offering free Grab & Go meals Mondays and Thursdays at Manistee Middle High School at MMHS at 525 Twelfth Street from 9 am to 10 am. This food service program is available to all MAPS online learners in addition to any Manistee community families with children 18 & younger and students with disabilities up to 26 years of age.
Grab & Go Food Service program details:
- Grab & Go meal service will begin on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 8. Breakfast and lunch meals for 4 days will be served that day.
- Beginning September 14, meals can be picked up Mondays and Thursdays.
- Curbside pick-up will be available at the MMHS main entrance drive at the student drop off area.
