DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WEHT) — No child should go hungry — and that’s why Daviess County Public Schools are working to provide quality meals to children even when school is not in session.

The federally funded Summer Feeding Program begins Friday, May 20, and continues every weekday throughout the summer through Aug. 5. Officials say DCPS food services staff members rise before dawn every weekday throughout the summer to begin preparing breakfasts, lunches and snacks to be delivered to sites around the county. 

The best part is your child doesn’t have to be a DCPS student to receive free meals. School officials say the free meals are available to all children and youth age 18 and younger.

Meals will not be served on Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day) or Monday, July 4 (Independence Day). A complete list of serving locations and times can be found below.
