The Summer Feeding program has been going strong for a week with over 6,l00 meals served. Even though thousands have already celebrated getting a nutritious meal, the program, partners and volunteers will hold an official community celebration kick-off on Wednesday in Ridge Ferry Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The celebration will include activities, free meals for kids 18 and under and fun for the entire family.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is partnering with local communities again this year to serve free meals for children and Floyd County Schools is teaming up with local churches and organizations to meet the need in our community.

There are no income requirements and any child under the age of 18 may visit one of the community locations to get a good meal.
