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.”
