Children in Hardin County have the opportunity to eat a free lunch beginning June 5.
Hardin County Schools Child Nutrition department provides a free lunch to any child 18 years old and younger this summer, according to a news release from the district.
The HCS Summer Meals program is available at five mobile sites and three schools. The program runs weekdays from June 5 to July 28.
“The program certainly meets a need in the community,” HCS Child Nutrition Director Josey Crew said in the release. “The district is reimbursed for all expenses by the federal government. We’re providing a service for many children who otherwise would not have access to a nutritious meal.”
Free lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at G.C. Burkhead Elementary, John Hardin High and North Hardin High schools.
The mobile site schedule is from 11 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. at Rineyville Dollar General Store, 4478 Rineyville Big Springs Road; from 11:40 a.m. to noon at Ponderosa Manor Mobile Home Park, 319 Ponderosa Drive in Elizabethtown; from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Youngers Creek Baptist Church, 251 Youngers Creek Road in Elizabethtown; from 12:20 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. at Brentwood Estates, 369 W. Elm Road in Radcliff; and from 1 p.m. to 1:20 p.m. the former West Point School, 209 N. 13th St. in West Point.
Children receiving a meal do not have to be enrolled in a Hardin County school.
