BEND LA PINE SUPERINTENDENT SAYS THERE IS STILL A HIGH DEMAND FOR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCHES. 

 

With the local economy improving - how busy is the free summer lunch program? And how about free and reduced lunches during the school year?

 

Central oregon's economy is getting better - but some families continue to struggle. In fact- the Superintendent of Bend La Pine schools says they are still seeing a lot of kids who need help with free or reduced lunches...and the summer lunch program continues to be very busy-

 

"Summer lunch is a really important program- it helps them stay connected with the district and stay engaged..."

 

 

The free lunch program also focuses on a summer reading agenda.  Superintendent Ron Wilkinson was on FM 100.1 and 1110 KBND morning news on Monday.  Wilkinson says he hopes to see the numbers of struggling families drop soon as the economy improves.
