The Hardin County Schools summer feeding program begins Tuesday, May 26.

Meals will be given out at three schools and mobile distribution will be at stops in neighborhoods across the county.

“This year our fixed sites are three high schools, Central Hardin High School, John Hardin High School and North Hardin High School," said district spokesman John Wright. Lunch will be available at those sites every weekday from 11 a.m  to 1 p.m.

The meals are free to anyone 18 or younger.

Wright said the child nutrition staff will continue to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, as they have been doing since health precautions were put into effect. The staff will be wearing masks and gloves and distributing meals from the curbside.

Individuals picking up the meals are also encouraged to wear masks to prevent the spread of the virus.

The district also runs its Crusin’ Café, as well as school buses and other district vehicles, to bring summer meals to 10 other locations across the county.

Locations and times for the distribution sites are available on the Hardin County Schools website.
