Now that school’s out for local students, many parents are wondering how to make sure their kids have nutritious meals over the summer.  The US Department of Agriculture is partnering with local communities to serve free meals for children, and the Floyd County Schools are teaming with local churches and organizations to meet the needs of area children.

Meals will be available starting today at some locations, according to a Floyd County Schools media release.

Walk in sites will be located in the cafeterias at the following Floyd County Schools with meals served for breakfast and lunch each Monday thru Friday starting today and continuing thru August 7th.  Breakfast will be served at 8 am, and lunch will be served at 11:30 am.  The list of participating schools includes:  Garden Lakes Elementary, Model High, Pepperell High and Coosa High.

The following will serve lunch only at 11:30 am:  Cave Spring Elementary, McHenry Primary and Midway Primary.  Cave Spring and McHenry will be open today thru August 7th.  Midway will be open June 4th thru June 15th.

There are a number of other community locations where meals will be served this summer, thanks to the help of community agencies, churches and volunteers.

Floyd County Schools Superintendent Dr. Lynn Plunkett states, “This is a vital program for our community and we look forward to working with the many organizations and volunteers coming together to make this possible for our children.  Our free and reduced meal percentages have risen sharply during the economic downturn so this program will help many of our struggling families this summer.”
