Jackson Public Schools Meal Program
From the JPS Facebook page:
During the mandated State of Michigan shut down JPS will be providing breakfast and lunch to ALL Jackson County school age children. Children do not need to be present when picking up meals, rather parents may come and request the number of meals needed. Please see information attached on procedures and locations. This communication will be repeated every other day until 4/3/20 to ensure no child goes hungry. Thank you for your assistance in helping JPS make sure that all students are fed. If you have other questions regarding community resources please utilize 2-1-1 service.
