LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Monday, June 6 marks the start of free school lunches for students in Fayette County.

The Summer Food Service Program provides free meals for children age 18 and younger when school is not in session. Fayette County Public Schools is participating in the program, along with God’s Pantry Food Bank and Employment Solutions.

Lunch will be available to children weekdays on a first-come, first-served basis at designated school locations, dates, and times beginning June 6.

There are some changes this year that parents should keep in mind. Each child must be present to receive a meal and they must eat on-site.

Parents will not be able to take multiple meals and curbside pickup options are not available this summer.
