FAIRBORN — Fairborn City Schools is offering free lunches through the summer months to local children in need.
“Fairborn City Schools staff actually take the meals to kids at various sites — serving a majority of a hot entree,” Child Nutrition Supervisor Kathleen Housman said in a letter to the Herald. ” … The Child Nutrition staff do a great job … They take a lot of pride in what they do — they are Fairborn residents, with children attending our district.”
Staff members drive a van-full of food and park it at various locations within the City of Fairborn. Participants then line up while staff members serve up meals. Children 18 and younger are welcome to join.
The summer lunch program will run through Friday, July 26 and excludes Thursday, July 4.
The meals are served at:
– Baker Middle School, 200 Lincoln Dr. under the big tree from 11-11:15 a.m.
– Landmark Apartments, 264 Landmark Ct. near the community room in the back from 11:30-noon.
