Free summer lunch program available

Summer is here and school has dismissed and for the next few months. Playing, swimming and bike riding become the order of the day. A good lunch should always be a part of your child’s day too - no matter what time of year.

For the third year in a row, Rush County Schools will offer the Free Summer Lunch Program. This program, funded by the Federal Government through the State of Indiana, will bring lunch to kids during the summer months.

“This is a wonderful program for our youth. Last year, we provided a little over 5,000 lunches to kids at four sites. In our third year we will continue to have four sites to serve the youth of our community,” Mrs. Norene Wright, program director, said.

Lunch will consist of a meat, bread, fruit or vegetable and milk. Participants should be no older than 18 years of age and can receive lunch at one of the following locations:
