Summer Feeding Program underway

The City of Troy’s Summer Feeding Program is back in session.

Last summer, the program had to switch to a grab-and-go bag lunch for students due to COVID-19 restrictions. Jan Baxter Lee, coordinator of the program for the City of Troy, said those protocols will remain in place this year as well.

“We’ll have different sack lunches for the students,” Lee said. “We’ll have a sandwich, fruits and veggies and snacks that are all USDA approved. It will be grab-and-go again this year at all of our sites and lunches will be provided for students 18 months to 18 years.”

The Summer Feeding Program will run through July 23 this summer.

Lunches are available at the following sites:

• Meeksville Volunteer Fire Department from 11 a.m. to noon

• Outreach Endtime Church from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

• Charles Henderson Highs School from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
