The Logan County school district expanded its meal site locations on Wednesday, March 18, to include 21 new sites.

Initially all meals were being served at the six county schools, but have not greatly expanded. As a result, approximately 1,350 free meals were handed out to students on Wednesday.

“That’s almost double what we were doing from the six schools on Tuesday,” said Logan County superintendent Paul Mullins.

Breakfast and lunch are available together for pick-up, and are free to anyone age 18 and under from 10 a.m. to noon at the following locations.

Berea Church
Forest Grove Church
Schochoh Community Center
Cave Springs Church
CTC-Career and Technical Center
New Friendship Church
Pleasant Hill Church
Gupton’s Grove Church
H&H (old IHS building)
Old Chandler’s School House
Active Adult Daycare
Center Baptist Church
Elk Lick Church
Haley’s Roost
New Hope Church
Pleasant Union Church
Dripping Springs Church
Keysburg Store
Walnut Grove Church
Woodlawn Church
Mullins said that if it is an extreme hardship for anyone to make it out to one of those locations, or one of the school buildings, the family resource personnel will make sure they get one.

“We’re really excited that so many people are taking advantage of this and we think those numbers are going to rise as people realize that some of these sites are closer to their home than maybe the schools are,” Mullins said.

Mullins praised his staff for being able to pull off the new feeding program in very little time.

“Our cafeteria workers and bus drivers have been tremendous with their dedication for getting these meals to the students getting meals,” Mullins said. “Our food services director, Jaime Fair, and our transportation director, David Ward, helped come up with an outstanding plan for getting this up and going.”
