Free meals offered for area kids


MIDDLEPORT — Coming up with meals for children may be hard this summer while school is out. The good news is that the Middleport Church of Christ is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to serve free meals the rest of the summer.

There are no income requirements, and any child under age 18 may come to eat. The meals will be served in their Family Life Center at the corner of 5th and Main Streets in Middleport, Monday-Friday from noon until 12:30 p.m. The meals run now through Tuesday, August 22nd.

There will be weekend take-home meals available for those interested but parents must fill out a one-time application that does have income requirements to get these meals. An application may be picked up and returned at the meal site during the daily meal time.

If you have any questions feel free to contact the church at 740-992-2914 Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
