Clinton School kids can take advantage of free lunches from the school district courtesy of a grant from the USDA.
Superintendent of Clinton Schools Curt Nettles says this is the program that allowed them to continue to provide lunches to children after schools were shut down in March. As the new school year began, the program went away but now it has returned.
For parents that may have been struggling to pay for their children's lunches, this will be a big bonus and Nettles adds it's also another layer of nutrition for the kids in their lunch program.
According to Nettles, the al a carte items that are available at the junior high school and high school buildings are not eligible for the free lunch programs.
