OC Students participating in Summer Feeding Program

More students in the School District of Oconee County (SDOC) are taking advantage of the Summer Feeding Program. This is the third year that the SDOC has partnered with the Oconee County Public Library (OCPL) to feed kids lunch over the summer. Gloria Moore, Chief Financial Officer for the SDOC gives participation numbers this summer. “We probably served around 8,000 meals in June, so that is really good thing for our kids.” Kids get a good meal, adds Moore. “It’s a good meal, it’s a nutritious meal that would qualify for reimbursement under the USDA guidelines, so it is a good thing. There are sites in Salem, Westminster, Fair Oak, Seneca and Walhalla. We’ve had good representation in all those areas.” No registration is required. Only one meal per child, per day and the child must be present to receive the meal, no carry-outs are allowed. All children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. Lunches are distributed at the Westminster Rec Center from 11-11:30am, Salem Town Hall from 11am to noon, the Seneca and Walhalla Libraries from 11:30am to 12:30pm, and at the Westminster Library from 12pm to 1pm, Monday through Friday.
