For many children in Detroit and surrounding communities, when the school year ends, so does their guarantee of a healthy meal. Food pantries across Metro Detroit are emphasizing the need to keep their shelves stocked during the summer months.

The expanded program will distribute roughly eight thousand 35-pound meal kits to families with kids enrolled in Early Head Start, Head Start, and Great Start Readiness programs.
