2019 Summer Lunch Program Serves More than 6,000 Meals
The Chillicothe City School District's Summer Lunch Program served 6,003 lunches within its 10-week duration. This was a 609-meal increase compared to 2018, according to CCSD Food Services Director Mary Montgomery.
"Our summer lunch staff did such an amazing job," said Montgomery. "They put all of their heart, hard work, and determination into this summer to make sure our students' needs were met!"
The Summer Lunch Program was open to all students ages 18 and under.
In order to reach the community, a mobile food unit called "Babe the Big Blue Lunch Bus" alternated week-day travel to various locations, including Danberry Cinema, Massieville Park, Millenium Grove, Mighty Children's Museum, Shawnee Lanes, the city pool, and Mt. Logan School.
Lunches were also served at the Chillicothe Primary School cafeteria Monday through Thursdays.
