The Kings Local School District is partnering with South Lebanon Community Center and Joshua’s Place to provide free meals to kids for the summer.

The Summer Food Service Meal Program will provide lunches to children free of charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service, officials with the program said.

Children between 1 and 18 years of age are eligible for free meals. Youth age 19-21 who have a mental or physical disability (as determined by state or local education agency) and who participate during the school year in a public or private nonprofit school program are also eligible to receive free meals, officials said.

Last summer, Kings Food Service provided over 1,300 meals during the program.

The free meals will be provided at the South Lebanon Community Center.

Officials will be serving meals daily from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during kickoff week, which will run June 3 through June 7.

From June 10 through July 26, meals will be served every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
