IRMO, S.C. (WIS) - Lexington-Richland School District Five announced its Summer Food Service Program dates Friday.

The program will begin on Wednesday, June 23 and end on Thursday, August 4. Pick up days are on Wednesdays. However, meals will not be offered on Wednesday, July 7. All children ages 0-18 are eligible for the service.

“We have had good participation with our Summer Food Service Program over the years,” said Todd Bedenbaugh, School District Five’s executive director of operations. “Some families struggle to provide balanced meals to their children in the summer months, and our program helps lighten that burden. Poverty does not take a break in the summer.”
