WEST POINT, Ala. – Cullman County Schools kicked off this year’s Summer Feeding Program on Monday, June 10.  

Cullman County Schools Superintendent Dr. Shane Barnette said, “We are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to our students and community.”

Beginning at 8 a.m. school-aged children lined up to make their way through the lunchroom lines at participating schools. Breakfast was served from 8-9 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

West Point Elementary School, one of designated lunchroom locations, had a smaller turnout than was anticipated, according to the school’s office staff. The program is open to all children in the county, but the first day mainly saw the students who are enrolled in the school’s Summer Reading Camp.

The Summer Feeding Program will continue weekdays through the month of June.

Meals will be served in the lunchrooms at Vinemont, Welti, West Point, Harmony, Fairview, Cold Springs, Holly Pond and Hanceville Elementary Schools, as well as Good Hope High School, Monday-Friday until June 28.

The Summer Feeding Program is open to all children and students younger than 18 who live in Cullman County, free of charge.
