McCreary County School’s Food
Service Director Mitzi Stephens
announced that the Summer Food
Service Program will begin some time next week.
The program, designed to provide healthy and nutritious meals to children under the age of 18 over the summer will deliver lunch to at least five drop off locations throughout the county.
The times and locations for the drop off’s are as follows:
10:30 to 10:55 – McCreary County Apartments
11:00 to 11:30 – McCreary County Public Library
11:40 – 12:05 – McCreary County Park
12:15 – 12:40 – Apartments on Pigskin Road
12:50 – 1:15 – Pine Knot Housing Authority
Adjustments to the time may be made and additional drop off locations may be added over the course of the summer. Any changes or additions can be viewed on the District’s web page.
The tentative start date for the program is Monday, June 10th, but the District is waiting on final approval from the Kentucky Department of Education.
Stephens said the program is also authorized to provide lunches to vacation Bible schools and urges organizers to contact her to be put on the distribution list. She noted several churches have already contacted her about joining the program.
Last month the Board of Education approved purchasing a wrap for a District bus that will be used to deliver the food to the drop off locations.
