“The summer program is great for kids and families that are struggling to get by,” said Bucyrus City Schools Food Service Director Lorie Pennington. “Since the economy in this area is still working toward improvement, the school board and the administration thought it vital that the food service department continue with the summer program.
“Our main goal is to help families — not only in Bucyrus, but the surrounding areas — by providing them with the nutritious meals over the long summer months. Any child from any school district or state is eligible to participate.”
