Feeding Local School Children During Summer

May 07, 2019

As in the past few years, local school children will receive summer lunches through the generosity of local churches, businesses, community service organizations, and individuals, as well as the support of the local food pantry.

Families who depend on the school lunch program during the school year may need these extra resources in order to provide nutritious meals throughout the summer months.

Many in the Paris community, concerned about the financial hardship this may create for some families, are committed to provide sack lunches for students whose families indicate that they would like to participate. This year’s program is scheduled to run for ten weeks, beginning June 2.

Parents who have not already received a blank registration form can pick one up at the office of Paris First Baptist Church Monday through Thursday during normal business hours.

This program is supported through donations. Any individuals, churches, or businesses who would like to help can send a donation to First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 89, Paris, MO 65275. All donations should be labeled “Summer Lunches.” All money donated goes directly to purchase items needed for the lunches.
