Episcopal Church to distribute meals to kids over summer

St. Paul's Episcopal Church will provide a summer lunch program for kids over the summer at Huntress Park.

The church received approval from the Clay Center City Council Tuesday to distribute meals at the park's shelter house west of the swimming pool 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday starting June 1 and continuing until school starts in August.

In past summers the church has distributed hot dog meals to kids at the Huntress Park swimming pool, but only on an occasional basis.

"The St. Paul's Episcopal Church has determined there is a need in this community for healthy lunches for children who are in and around the swimming pool on a regular basis," a release from the church said. "The swimming pool concession stand provides snacks and candy, but no healthy meal.
