Free hot lunch program in Onslow County seeing light turnout

Posted: Updated:

The Child Nutrition Department of Onslow County Schools offers free hot lunch every day from 11am-1pm at Clyde Erwin Elementary School, located at 323 New River Drive in Jacksonville.  Organizers say turnout has been light since the program began in June.  The program continues through August 23rd and any child under the age of 18 is eligible, regardless of income.  "We really want people to know we welcome all children … it is sad we have not had as much participation," Tilwanja Lucas, the district's child nutrition director said.  Lucas fears with the lack of participation in this program, since it is the first time it has been offered by Onslow County Schools, it could be eliminated next summer.  Community groups are welcome. Lucas requests large groups call ahead for a service time and to make sure seating is available.  To arrange for your group's service time call 910-455-2211 Ext. 20573.
