The free summer meals program coordinated by the Charles City School District distributed over 12,000 meals to families in the month of June.
Superintendent Mike Fisher told the school board Monday night that 296 families received free breakfasts and 293 families received free lunches.
Fisher says the numbers for July are expected to take a dip as families head out for summer travel and vacations. He saluted food service provider, Taher, Incorporated, for their extra efforts to make sure hungry kids are fed.
All meals distributed have been free through federal COVID relief measures, which also provided free school meals all last year. The program will continue for the 2021-2022 school year.
