Sevier School District officials have announced locations and times free meals will be served at nearly a dozen locations in the summer food service program in Sevier County.
Lunches are being served on weekdays to those 18 years of age and under. The program began June 4 and continues through Aug. 2 except for July 4, 5 and 24.Meals will be prepared at the Ashman Elementary School in Richfield under the supervision of Nancy Martell and then transported to the food-serving sites, according to Karen Pace, district child nutrition program director. The program is funded through the U. S. Department of Agriculture.
The meals will provide one-third of a child's daily nutritional needs, Pace said. Sandwiches, pizza, corn dogs, burritos, fruits, vegetables, milk and desserts will be served.
Meals remaining after children and students are fed will be available to adults at a cost of $2.25.
Meals will be served at 11:30 a.m. at the Venice LDS Ward Chapel, Central Valley City Park, Ashman Elementary, Richfield Lions Park at the Forest Service garage at 400 East Center in Richfield.
At noon the program moves to the Koosharem Elementary School and at 12:15 p.m. to the Sigurd City Park. The 12:30 p.m. locations will be the Rotary Park in Richfield, Glenwood City Park, Monroe City Park and the Joseph City Park.
Pace said meals will not be served in Annabella because that area did not meet eligibility requirements.
Some 13 adults and 21 youths will be employed in the program this year. Pace said more than 40,000 free meals were served last year in Sevier County.
