The Uniontown School District is providing a meal program to its’ districts’ children through June 25.
The first day for meals was June 2.
In addition, summer school children receive activity packets.
“We usually have kids in the building for summer school,” Tara Gorman, third-grade teacher at West Bourbon Elementary School, said. “We couldn’t because of the pandemic. This is our alternative plan, if they signed up for activity packets.”
“This week is a book, they get a book once a week, a craft kit and a couple of games to work on with siblings,” Gorman said. “This week they will be building paper airplanes and testing paper airplanes.”
Breakfast and lunch are available to children ages 1-18 in this program, with no eligibility or paperwork required to receive the food.
Multiple days breakfast and lunch will be provided to each child on Tuesday and Thursday of each week through June 25.
USD 235 Food Service Director Michelle DeMott said food is prepared on Mondays and Wednesdays and delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Parents are asked to call DeMott at 620-238-4968 to sign up.
DeMott will ask for some information of either a pickup point or a rural address for delivery.

Pickup points are the West Bourbon Elementary School on at the front of the building, Marmaton Community Church in Redfield, the city park in Mapleton, in front of the Bronson Meat Locker in Bronson.
