The Long County Board of Education and Commission are participating in a summer meals program that provides free breakfasts and lunches for children younger than 18.  
Volunteers serve meals at the cafeterias at Smiley Elementary School and Long County High School. The program is in effect from July 13-17,  according to school nutrition director Megan Mobley.
Breakfast is served from 7:30-8:15 a.m. and lunch is from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Anyone under 18 can get a meal at no charge. For adults, the cost is $2.30.
The program is offered through the Summer Food Service Program, the single largest federal resource for summer meal programs.
In addition to the meals served at the cafeterias, the following locations will have free lunches from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. through July 24: Macedonia Church, Pecan Park, Faith Temple Holiness Church, Oakdale Voting Precinct, Our Lady of Guadeloupe Church and Pleasant Hill Baptist Church.
First Baptist Church
of Ludowici will serve lunches from 11 a.m.-noon July 22-24.
“The summer meals program is a great project because it ensures that kids continue to get good meals, even when schools are not in session,” Mobley said.
