Davis County holding free lunch program this summer

Davis County will be providing free lunches to children up to the age of 18 this summer.

The free lunch program is in its first year of existence and is sponsored by the USDA.

The program features five different locations: two in Bloomfield, one in Drakesville, Pulaski, and Floris.

Adults can also take advantagge of the program for $3.50 per meal.

The first day had very strong numbers with 102 dining at the Bloomfield locations.

"The more children that are served, the better our program can be--it's not for any particular income level," said program supervisor, Stephanie Hawkins. "It's any child 18 and under. So kids, come out and hang out with your friends, grab some free lunch, and bring your parents along. We're having kid friendly food. Tomorrow is cheese pizza. So we hope to see you at one of our sites."

The free lunches will be served Monday through Friday and would not be possible without the help of volunteers.

The Drakesville and Pulaski sites are open 11:30 am until 12:15 pm. The Floris site is open from noon until 12:45 pm. And the Bloomfield locations are open 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.
