Summer Feeding Program


 For Immediate Release

Scott County Partnership Seeking Volunteers for Summer Feeding Program 

This summer the Scott County Partnership and both school districts are partnering with the Department of Education and the USDA to provide healthy lunches to students while on summer break. Volunteers are needed to help serve lunches in Austin and Lexington.

The meals are provided free to students ages preschool to 18 years old. Meals will be served from June 1 to July 31 in Austin and from June 4 through August 3 in Lexington.   

“We wanted to make sure students get a good meal for lunch during the summer months,” shared Kim Richie, who is overseeing the program for the Scott County Partnership. “Our hope is to help families that need some extra assistance. We are thrilled to provide meals for the children all week long.” 

The Austin Lunch schedule will begin at Austin Park at 12 p.m. and then serve at Calvary Temple Church at 12:45 p.m. The Lexington Lunch schedule will begin at the Lexington Firehouse at 11 a.m. and then serve at the Lexington Presbyterian Church at 11:45 a.m. We hope youth will come out every day at both sites to EAT THIS DELICIOUS FOOD!!!

Volunteers are needed for both sites to visit and interact with the youth! For more information on the Summer Feeding Program or to volunteer, please contact Kim Richie  at kim.richie@scottcountypartnership.org or call 812-820-0909.

CRADLE has received a grant from Mental Health America Indiana


CRADLE has received a grant from Mental Health America Indiana to hold a free training for professionals in our community (and of course other communities are welcome too) who want to learn more about Children’s Mental Health specifically mental health starting with Mom prenatally to the post birth age of 5.  I am attaching the flyer.  Please help us spread the word (our goal is 100 attendees).  Let me know if you plan to attend and what agency you represent.  We have funding to purchase the speakers book Tackling the Tough Stuff: A Home Visitor’s Guide to Supporting Families at Risk for up to 31 organizations who would benefit the most.
​I am also attaching a really nice brochure about Infant and Toddler Mental Health that does an excellent job explaining what Infant and Toddler Mental Health is.

Michelle Shelton, Scott County Partnership, recently spoke at the Lexington K-Kids meeting to thank the students for helping with the Salvation Army bell ringing over the Christmas season raising money for the Scott County ClearinghousePictured are Michelle Shelton, Faculty Advisor Lee Anna Willett and the LES K-KidsMichelle explained how the bell ringing helps the Clearinghouse provide goods, services and support to needy families in Scott County.  All the money raised by the Salvation Army here in Scott County stays in Scott County to help Clearinghouse serve our community.  The students had fun ringing the bell and singing Christmas carols and now understand they can have fun while providing a needed service for the community.  K-Kids is a Kiwanis family club designed to teach leadership through community service.
