GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — Buses were rolling in Scott County today. However, instead of delivering students, the buses were delivering meals.
"We'll deliver as many as ten-thousand meals if that's what we need to deliver," Scott County Superintendent Dr. Kevin Hub said.
With schools currently closed for at least the next two weeks amid the coronavirus outbreak, the district is serving or delivering breakfast and lunch to students. There are various meal pick-up locations, plus buses are also delivering food across the county. Here is information on the delivery schedules as shared on the Scott County Schools Facebook page.
School bus driver Ramona Foster delivered sacked lunches to children this afternoon.
"I just like making sure the babies get fed because you never know, parents have difficulties, they're at work that sort of thing, you don't know," Foster said. "I want to make sure the babies I love are fed."
The district is offering free meals to students 19 years old and younger. If students need a delivery, they can call (502) 570-3035, email firstname.lastname@example.org or message Scott County Schools Nutritian Services over Facebook.
School administrators say the Georgetown Chick-Fil-A is donating one-hundred sandwiches daily.
