2023-24 School Year:  Michigan Public School Students Prek-12 will receive Breakfast and Lunch at NO CHARGE.


Both the Michigan House and Senate approved Healthy School Meals for All in the state budget.

The budget will fund FREE school meals for all public K-12 students in Michigan for the 2023-24 School Year.  

Districts MUST still collect Free/Reduced Meal Applications.  We still need to verify eligibility levels for proper accounting of meals. 

Jenison and Hudsonville also still offer discounts on many school programs, including funding for Title 1 Math and Reading programs!!
