Meet Up and Eat Up
Meet Up and Eat Up is a collaborative movement to ensure that every child has access to nutritious meals 3 times a day, 365 days a year. For kids who rely on free and reduced price school lunches, the risk of going hungry is even greater in the summertime. Meet Up and Eat Up is supported through the national organization Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry.
