ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Enterprise City Schools will be rolling out its child nutrition program this Friday at participating schools.
The program will send students home with bagged meals to enjoy over the weekend.
Meal bags will contain two breakfast meals and two lunch meals, and the program is free.
It’s important to note all Enterprise City Schools will still offer free breakfast and free lunch to students each school day.
“It’s my understanding that during this epidemic that many of our students’ parents may have lost their jobs,” said Greg Faught, Enterprise City Schools superintendent. “They may be strained financially, and we just want to make sure that they have something to eat over the weekend so that they come back on Mondays ready to learn.”
Participating schools include Coppinville Junior High, Dauphin Junior High, the Early Education Center, Harrand Creek Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, Holly Hill Elementary, Pinedale Elementary, and Rucker Boulevard Elementary.
