Chambersburg Area School District Announces Free Summer Food Service Program for Youth

Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) has launched its Summer Food Service Program, scheduled to run from June 10th to July 25th, 2024. Available Monday through Thursday, the program aims to provide free nutritious meals to children 18 years and younger.

Lunch will be available at two locations within the community. Children can receive a free lunch at The Mike Waters Second Street Playground from 11:45 am to 11:55 am, and at 440 West Washington Street from 11:25 am to 11:35 am.

In addition to the daily lunch distributions, CASD has introduced a Pre-Order and Pick-Up Summer Meal Program at Lurgan Elementary and Falling Springs Elementary Schools. This service offers a free lunch for the same day and a free breakfast for the following day to children who have pre-ordered their meals online. Meals can be picked up from 11:00 am to 11:30 am.

Parents or guardians interested in pre-ordering meals can do so through the provided ordering link.

For additional information or inquiries, CASD has encouraged the community to contact their office at 261-3416 or 261-3391. Further details about the program are available on the official Summer Food Service Program flyer.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
