Shawnee and McLoud Schools are outlining summer meal plans.

McLoud Public Schools will be providing free breakfast and lunch meals to all children ages birth to 18 starting on Tuesday, June 1, and ending June 24.

According to Superintendent Steve Stanley, children ages zero to three who are McLoud residents can eat the meals, but older students must attend McLoud Schools to participate in the meal plan.

Stanley said the meals will be served in the cafeteria of the McLoud Early Childhood Center.

Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m each day Monday through Thursday.

The meals are not grab and go but rather sit down and eat meals for children.

In addition to McLoud, Shawnee Public Schools Child Nutrition will also continue to serve free meals this summer to anyone 18 years old and younger.
