LOGAN — The Logan City School District will be providing free lunches throughout the summer through their participation in the U.S Department of Agriculture’s Seamless Summer Option food program service.
According to LCSD Child Nutrition and Purchasing Manager Paul Guymon, the children do not have to live within the district’s boundaries but the child must be present to receive a free meal. Adults may also purchase a meal for $4.80.
The SSO Program makes it easier for schools to feed children during the traditional summer vacation periods by making it possible for schools to provide nutritious meals, after the regular school year ends.
“It helps bridge the gap of childhood hunger and we’re able to help our community,” Guymon said. “I think that’s really import for us to do that.”
LCSD will provide free lunch meals to children who are 18 years of age or younger at Logan High School at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mon through Thurs from June 6 to July 21.
