“I see firsthand during the school year how many hungry kids we feed and how those children rely on Troy City Schools to provide them a breakfast and a lunch,” Hufford said. “The thought of students not having an option to get a meal in summertime breaks my heart. The neat thing about this program is that any children 18 years and younger can come get a meal. The four serving sites do a great job of lining up different activities and games for the students to play, while also getting a lunch.”
