Guthrie Public Schools announced this year’s summer feed program for all children 18 years and younger.
“Hunger is one of the more severe roadblocks to the learning process,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister. “A lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. That’s why it’s imperative we ensure appropriate nutrition for our children during these critical months, even though school might not be in session.”
The feed program starts on June 1st and will run through June 30 and is open to all children ages 18 and younger. Participants can eat for free Monday through Thursday.
Breakfast will be served at Guthrie Upper Elementary School from 8 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.
Grab N Go meal bags will also be available Monday through Thursday at Charter Oak Elementary (10 – 10:15 a.m.), Mineral Wells Park (10:45 – 11 a.m.), Banner Park (11:15 – 11:30 a.m.), Cotteral Elementary (11:45 – 12 p.m.), Harvest Rd and Winter Wheat Drive (near the Silver Valley housing addition from 12:05 – 12:45 p.m.), and Central Elementary (12:30 – 12:45 p.m.).
Once again, this year, parents, guardians, and neighbors can pick up food without children present.
