Welcome to MiND!
In the event of unanticipated school closures (extreme cold day, snow day, water main break, frozen pipes, electrical issues, flooding, natural disasters, illness, etc.), Sponsors may participate in Unanticipated School Closure SFSP.
Due to the mandatory closure of all Michigan K-12 schools, the Michigan Department of Education is allowing all Sponsors who participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), and SFSP to serve meals during this time.
During this mandatory closure meals/snacks served must meet the meal pattern and are not required to be consumed onsite.
The Michigan Nutrition Data (MIND) system was developed by the Office of School Support
Service (OSSS), Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to integrate several subsystems supporting the Child Nutrition
Programs offered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

- School Nutrition Program
