This program makes sure that kids have access to nutritious meals even when school is not in session.
The Ohio County Schools Child Nutrition Program kicks off this June and runs until mid-July.
Renee Griffin with Ohio County School says we understand that many students and families rely on school lunches and when school isn’t in session, she says food insecurity rises.
Well, we’re gearing up for our annual summer feeding program for children in the Ohio Valley, ages 2 to 18. And we have several sites that we partner with a lot of community organizations to feed children.
Some sites have breakfast, some have lunch, some have both. Some have an afternoon snack as well, and all the times and dates of all the programs will be listed on our county website.Renee Griffin, Child nutrition director, Ohio County Schools
