Lewis County Schools are closed for the remainder of the school year, but educating and feeding the children is not.

During this time dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, many families may struggle to offer additional food for their children.

Food Service Director Debbie Willis, cafeteria workers, school resource officers, aides and volunteers are hard at work providing critical meals to Lewis County children.

An average of over 9,000 meals per week have been prepared and distributed to children of the community ages 18 and under.

Teachers at each school are offering learning opportunities for students via the Internet or packets of information available for pick up with meals.

Grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meals are available from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Elementary School cafeteria located on South Oak Street. Meals for Saturday and Sunday are included in Friday's distribution.
