LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Learning does not end when the school lets out for the summer. Neither does the need for good nutrition. Millions of children depend on free or reduced lunches and breakfast for nine months each year. For many children, summer vacation exposes them to an increased risk of hunger and developmental delays.
Boger City United Methodist Church in cooperation with the Lincoln County Schools Summer Lunch Program, with the support from the USDA, will host a no cost bag lunch for Lincoln County children ages 18 years old and younger. The program began today, June 19 and will continue Monday-Friday until August 11. The lunch will consist of a sandwich, vegetables, fruit and milk.
“There are a variety of things making Boger City United Methodist Summer Lunch Program unique to other Lincoln County School meal sites,” said Robert Tomlinson, BCUMC Summer Lunch Program Coordinator.
