Healthy meals available at AMS

Published 12:04 am Saturday, June 2, 2012

To promote healthy eating during the summer, children under the age of 18 can get a free breakfast and lunch at Andalusia Middle School weekdays through June 28.

Stephanie Dillard, child nutrition director for the city’s school system, said the meals will be available beginning Monday.

“This is a free nutritious meal for any child,” she said. “The only thing we ask is that groups, such as camps and Bible schools, call and give us a total estimate of the number of children that will be eating lunch each day.”

The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Meal times are 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. for breakfast and 10:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. for lunch Monday through Friday.
