In addition to the several media outlets keeping a running list of these sites, the Department of Michigan Education has repurposed its Summer Food Service Program map to show sites where meals are available along with the relevant information on when they are being offered.  This is a rapidly expanding list, so be sure to check with your local school district or media for the most up to date information.   You can also direct questions to MDE at 517-241-5374 or mde-sfsp@michigan.gov
