SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM

Mercer County Schools announces our sponsorship of the federally funded Summer Food Service Program. Breakfast and lunch will be open to all children, ages eighteen (18) years and under, who would like to participate.  

Meal packages containing five days of breakfasts and lunches will be at the following sites for pick-upBluefield Intermediate School, Princeton High School, Spanishburg School, and Montcalm Elementary School on Wednesdays starting June 10, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.  Any parents/guardians who come to one of the pick-up locations is asked to pull in and open the trunks of their vehicles for easy loading.  

A nutritious meal is important for children to learn, play and remain active during the summer months. Remember, Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation.
