Cedar City and Enoch’s hungry children will benefit from the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program again this summer! The sponsor organization locally is the Community Presbyterian Church funded through the Utah State Department of Education with the USDA Summer Lunch funding. This summer the lunch program will look a little different due to the COVID19 situation.

Free lunches will be made available to children this summer at the Cedar City Main St. Lion’s Pavilion. Parents will drive up and pickup meals for children similar to the school districts’ current program.   Lunches will be served Mondays through Fridays from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 on a first come, first served basis each day (1 meal per child).  Children must be under 18 years of age to receive a free lunch.  Those over 18 can purchase a lunch for $3.00.  The program begins on May 26 and continues until August 7. Lunches will not be served on July 4 and July 24.

Additionally, this summer lunches will be served at Enoch Elementary School during the same days on a first-come-first-served basis.  Parents will drive up and pickup meals for children similar to the school districts’ current program.  Lunches are served from 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m.  Lunches will not be served on July 4 and July 24.
