summer feeding 2019

At its May 2019 meeting, the Hardin County Board of Education approved three school sites from which children can eat a free lunch and two mobile cafés that will bring lunch to several Hardin County neighborhoods during the summer.

The Cruisin’ Café, a Hardin County Schools bus designed as a mobile dining area, made its debut last year and traveled to four sites.  It will be joined by another HCS vehicle to expand the summer feeding program.  The two vehicles will drive into eight neighborhoods each day for 20 minutes and serve meals to children who may not have the opportunity to get to one of the school sites. 

“We are excited to offer another opportunity for our families to come together, have a school connection, enjoy a meal and socialize each day,” HCS Child Nutrition Director Josey Crew said.  “Adding a second mobile site will be critical in our mission to ensure that more children have access to a healthy lunch.  Additionally, children will be able to grab a good book from our book nooks.  We hope that by having easy access to these books students continue reading over the summer.”

Any child (18 years of age and younger) may receive free food from The Cruisin’ Cafés or the summer feeding sites at the following locations:

  • North Hardin High School (801 S. Logsdon Parkway, Radcliff, KY)
  • John Hardin High School (384 W.A. Jenkins Road, Elizabethtown, KY)
  • Central Hardin High School (3040 Leitchfield Road, Cecilia, KY)
