“We are excited to be able to expand the summer lunch program to provide nutritious meals to children during the summer months when school meals are not available,” said Galion City Schools superintendent Jim Grubbs. “It is important for the district’s food service department to provide the meals for the summer lunch program to ensure all meals served will follow safety and government standards for nutrition.”

No meals will be served July 4 to allow staff and volunteers to enjoy the holiday with their families.
