Children in Plum and surrounding communities can get free meals this summer at Holiday Park Elementary.

The school at 313 Holiday Park Drive is one of the host sites for the Summer Food Service Program.

Children ages 18 and younger can get free meals from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday from June 24 through Aug. 1.

There will also be storytelling and crafts. The program is funded though the federal Department of Agriculture and administered through the state Department of Education.

“The summer food program will offer fun activities that help kids stay active while enjoying healthy, nutritious meals over the summer months,” said Jessica Griggle, Plum School District food services director.

Participants do not need to be Plum residents. More information about the program is available at

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
