Guthrie Public Schools announced this week that their summer meals are back.
“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.”
Starting June 1st through 24th all children ages 18 and younger can eat for free Monday through Thursday.
This year parents, guardians and neighbors can pick up food without children present.
