As the strike continues, many students who bank on school to get their meals for the day are left with little options.
Starting Wednesday, however, the district and several community organizations have come together to help provide students lunch as the strike continue.
According to a press release from the district any student age 18 months to 18 years is eligible for the free lunch program. Lunch will be severed from 11:30 to 12:30 at the following locations.
Bethel Baptist Church
the Knox County YMCA
Hope Wesleyan Church
First Presbyterian Church
First Church of the Nazarene
Woodland Bend Community Center
Cedar Creek PLace Community Center.
According to district officials, it’s the district’s intent to run the program throughout the work stoppage.
