Summer meal programs open to area students

June 6, 2013

Children in Oktibbeha County will have access to free healthy breakfasts and lunches this summer, thanks to a new program offered by the Oktibbeha County School District.

The Summer Food Service Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, serves as a tool to provide nutritious meals to students during the summer when many children do not have access to healthy meals. Darnell Boyd, Oktibbeha County School District food service director, said this was the first year OCSD qualified for the program.
