Lexington-Richland School District Five will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program again this year, beginning June 23. The service will continue through Aug. 4, and pick up days are on Wednesdays. Meals will not be offered Wednesday, July 7.

All children through 18 years old are eligible for the free meals.

“We have had good participation with our Summer Food Service Program over the years,” said Todd Bedenbaugh, School District Five’s executive director of operations. “Some families struggle to provide balanced meals to their children in the summer months, and our program helps lighten that burden. Poverty does not take a break in the summer.”
