Children in program don’t have to be Holley residents

HOLLEY – The school district will begin offering free breakfasts and lunches on Monday to children ages 18 and younger.

Holley has hosted the program the past five summers. Children in the program don’t have to be Holley school district residents. There isn’t an income level threshold and pre-registration isn’t required.

“It’s always been our intention to provide meals to the children of Holley over the summer,” said Brian Bartalo, Holley school district superintendent. “However, we didn’t typically find many children from other districts participating in this program in the past. This year’s circumstances may be different, as many area families are in greater need, given the challenging economic situations many face. We’re happy that the Holley CSD can support the children in our area.”

Holley is offering the meals in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The program runs through Aug. 14.

Transportation will not be provided by the district for this program.

The grab and go meals, which consist of one breakfast and one lunch per child, may be picked up from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, in the Elementary School Back Bus Loop.

Adults may also purchase breakfast and lunch during this program. Breakfast is $2.65 and lunch is $4.45.
