This is the image for the news article titled COVID Response Feeding Program to ContinueOn Thursday free lunches were added to the already free breakfasts served at Weakley County Schools. This week the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it was extending the flexible free meals program that helped Weakley County Schools’ Nutrition Department serve more than 420,000 meals since closure.

According to Trista Snider, Nutrition Director, the extension of the program also allows for families with students from more than one school and currently enrolled in the Monitored Distance Education program to pick up their food from one location.

Additional details will be discussed at the school board meeting tonight. As the program develops further, those details will be shared on the county’s website (weakleyschools.com).

The free meals are set to continue until Christmas break.
