A school program serving meals in the summer is coming closer to where families live in an attempt to feed more children.
Franklin and Clark-Pleasant schools will continue to offer free meals to children this summer, and have added a total of eight sites in neighborhoods, such as apartment complexes. Greenwood will again offer free summer meals at Northeast Elementary School.
Last year, Northwood Elementary School was the only site in Franklin where kids could show up for a free meal without registering in advance. The new locations this year at Traditions Apartments, Franklin Cove Apartments and Countryview Mobile Home Community were added to serve those students that can’t easily walk to Northwood.
