Food for Families with Children in School
We recognize that many families rely on meals at school to feed their children. Even though schools are closed and your child attends a school program operated by Ingham ISD, the local school districts are committed to providing access to healthy meals to anyone 18 and under as well as students that attend an ISD program through age 26 with an active IEP.
Each district has a different schedule and a different process by which meals can be accessed. Below is the most up to date information we have for each local district’s plan for providing food service. You can access each district’s information directly by clicking on the links provided. As the scope of this measure reaches beyond our school population, I encourage the sharing of this information.
We hope you are safe and well.
