MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Madison County Food Service will be offering kids breakfast, lunch, and dinner over the next few months.

“There’s a lot of needy kids in Madison County. There’s a lot of kids in the district. There’s a lot of kids in the state that are food insecure, and they’re going to go hungry if we don’t feed them,” said Madison County Food Service Director Scott Anderson.

Madison County Food Service will provide daily meals through the summer to any kids under 18, whether they are a Madison County student or not.

“It’s a really good place for kids that aren’t able to get lunch, and it’s awesome for us after we go out and work hard. We always come up here hungry,” said 17-year-old Ashton Hulberg.

The program has grown over the last few years.

“We have gone out to a lot more communities. We’ve also utilized a lot of our own vehicles to take the food out to the students, for those who do not have the ability to come to us,” said Madison County Food Service Administrative Assistant Kim Hall.

They have a bus that will deliver lunch and dinner to different locations in the county. You can find their schedule here .

Those behind the program hope to serve 100,000 meals by the end of the summer.
