Franklin County Schools launched its free mobile emergency feeding pickup sites for students under age 18 on Tuesday.
CASA of the Bluegrass volunteer coordinator Jody Spaulding had a team of helpers assembled to distribute lunches and breakfasts to hungry kids at Capital Mobile Home Park on Georgetown Road — one of 12 mobile sites serving students.
The district is also providing students with the next day’s breakfast at each mobile site and both middle schools.
“This is nice,” Spaulding said. “They can pick up lunch for today and breakfast for tomorrow all in one stop.”
Bondurant and Elkhorn middle schools are serving lunch each weekday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. until Friday, April 10.
