More children received meals from two local school districts over the summer, but a third school district may end its summer food program because too few students showed up.
Clark-Pleasant schools served 13,961 lunches in June and July, while Franklin schools served nearly 20,500 meals this summer. That averages 410 lunches served per day for Clark-Pleasant, and 477 lunches served per day for Franklin, according to food service directors Kim Combs and Jill Overton.
Children and their families also had more options for where to get a meal. Clark-Pleasant and Franklin each added three summer food sites this year, bringing Clark-Pleasant’s total to eight and Franklin’s to seven.
