Teton County School District No. 1 is distributing free meals for kids up to the age of 18 at Colter Elementary School and Teton County Library this summer.
Kids can eat breakfast from 8 to 9 a.m. at Colter and lunch from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the school or the library. There no restrictions on which children can come in for a meal.
"It doesn't matter if they are homeschooled or go to school in Texas," Food and Nutrition Director Wes Clarke said.
Reimbursements from the Department of Agriculture fund the program, and Clarke encouraged anyone with a kid to send them down for the meals. The program becomes more sustainable if more kids are in it, he said, so those who don't feel their kids need a free meal should still send them down.
At the library, kids can grab a sack lunch for on-the-go days, and at Colter the sit-down fare sounds pretty tasty. Tuesday's menu offered teriyaki chicken and brown rice, and cheeseburgers on are on Wednesday's menu.
Adults are welcome to eat with their kids, and they can choose to leave a donation or eat for free. However, not just any adult can waltz in off the street, they must come in with their children.
