Starting June 1 and continuing through July, the Louisville Municipal School District will offer free food twice a day weekly to anyone 18 and younger as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Feeding Program.
“The purpose is to feed our children throughout the summertime so when they come back to school in August, they’ll be ready to learn,” said Superintendent Ken McMullan. “There are a lot of studies that show that students who don’t receive adequate nutrition during the summer don’t do as well when they come back to school during August.”
This program allows children who do not attend the school system to eat for free as well to help the county as a whole provide adequate food for all children. The program is for any child 18 years or under.
Breakfast and lunch will be served at 5 different schools with dates of the program differing upon the area.
Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows:
7:30 A.M. – 8:30 A.M.
10:30 A.M. – 12:30 P.M
Louisville High – June 1, 2015 through July 29, 2015
