Tongue River Free Lunch Program Underway

This summer, children up to the age of 18 are welcome to head to the old Tongue River Elementary School in Ranchester for a free lunch on Mondays-Thursdays. According to Sheridan County School District #1 Business Manager Jeremy Smith, the lunch takes place from noon-1pm.

Funds for this program were provided by federal dollars secured through SCSD1. During the first week, Smith said an estimated 55-60 kids came to eat. Food Service Director for District 1 Dennis Decker, explains what is served.

Smith said that as the program continues to get discovered, they expect around 100 mouths per day. The free lunches will be provided all the way through the summer until school starts. Volunteers and financial donations can be made by contacting Smith at 307-655-9541 extension 1131.
