Ogilvie Public Schools announced an extension of their summer food program last week.
The USDA-ran program allows for any person between the ages of 1 - 18 in the district and community to receive a breakfast and a lunch for 7 days a week. The meals can be picked up weekly on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ogilvie Superintendent Kathy Belshiem sat down with Rockin' Robin on 95.5 KBEK and explained the benefit of the program and the need to sign up.
"The only request that we have at our school is that people have to sign up for the program so that of course our food service knows how many meals to be preparing for your pick-up." explained Belshiem
Belshiem added that you don’t have to reside in the school district to be eligible for the program and encourages people to sign up through the Ogilvie School website by clicking on the Covid mask icon which will take you to a survey link to register.
You can find more information about the program at the Ogilvie School website. The program is slated to start on January 5th.
