USDA Nutrition Program Provides For Lufkin Children
Though this program is administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture and carried out with the help of local schools and churches, it is funded by a country-wide USDA program.
With grocery prices at an all-time high, families struggle to get their children's basic needs met. Programs like this help fill in these gaps and make sure that well-fed, happy kids come back to school in the fall.
There are no restrictions for kids picking up the meals. No identification is needed for children and teens 18 years of age and younger or enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years of age to be fed.
