Keeping Food on the Table

Posted by SEEDS on Mar 17 , 2020 - 07:34 am

When we heard all schools in Michigan would be closed until after spring break, we worried. How would students remain food secure without the meals the school day provides? Even without a global pandemic, one in six children in Michigan already struggles with hunger. We are so honored to have partner schools who are working hard to keep children fed during these unexpected school closings!

Food security and childcare areĀ hot topics right now; they are priorities for SEEDS After School year round. Our staff served over 16,500 meals and snacks during the 2018-2019 school year and summer of 2019. Cooking is also a favorite activity at many of our sites.

SEEDS programming gives students a place to go after school, often the most dangerous time of the day for youth. Though our mission drives us to create great lesson plans, a lot of what we functionally provide is a safe place and a solid meal for children while their parents work. Learn more about what we do here. And we are looking forward to programming resuming once schools open again!
