LAURINBURG — With the school year behind Scotland County students, the Scotland County Summer Feeding program is for the eighth year stepping in to help fuel two months of fun in the sun for hundreds of children.


The program provides lunch, and at some sites breakfast, at no charge to anyone under the age of 18. Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and organized by the Restoring Hope Center, the program served 31,000 meals last year at sites sponsored by day camps and churches.


When the program began in 2007, children were served at eight Scotland County sites. This year, it has grown to over 25 sites to meet demand in a needy area. More than 75 percent of Scotland County Schools students are eligible for free or reduced-cost school lunches, with eligibility over 90 percent in some elementary schools.


“During the summer there’s still a need for that, for that nutrition,” said Sharon Quick, coordinator of the summer feeding program. “This program is able to step into that gap for the children to be able to receive the nutrition that they need.”


Many of the feeding sites up and running this week and starting in the coming weeks will continue to provide meals until the start of school in mid-August. Hot meals are provided by the Scotland County Schools child nutrition department and on Fridays the program sources cold meals from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern N.C.


“It’s basically meals that children are familiar with from school,” said Quick. ‘When we work with child nutrition it may be a hamburger or chicken, lima beans, fruit, and milk, and the food bank meals are a cold boxed meal with a sandwich, but they still meet the nutritional guidelines.”


At some sites, meals are provided in conjunction with a day camp or other program, but those sites will give food to any child whether or not he or she is enrolled in the program.


In addition to the sites listed below, mobile sites at Tara Village, Highland Village, and McIntosh Apartments will begin Monday and will continue to operate until August 15, serving lunch at 11:45 p.m. Monday through Friday excluding July 4.
