Lunch and Literacy

Summer Program Bus

Lunch will be served to children and teens under the age of 18 years old.  Meals must be eaten onsite to ensure food safety and that the child/teen consumes the meal.  Adult meals will not be served.  All children/teens will receive a free book.  Summer is a great time to get lost in a book!  Carter County School System promotes nutrition and literacy throughout the year.  Please help get the word out in the communities about this great program!
