Despite the Cheatham County School District’s meal distribution program being over, the district is working on more free-meal opportunities to help during the summer months.
The first opportunity will be this Saturday, May 30.
One Generation Away, working in conjunction with local churches, will be hosting a food distribution at Ashland City Elementary School from 9:30-11:30 a.m or until the resources run out. The distribution process will operate as a drive-through system, and will be held rain or shine.
Volunteers are still needed to help with the distribution, and anyone who can help unload the truck and bag food should arrive at 7 a.m..
The next opportunity for the community to receive food will be Saturday, June 6, at 24 Church in Pleasant View. The Big Food Truck will be there from 9 a.m. until Noon. Recipients will need to enter from the side of Pleasant View City Hall.
The district says they are also working on plans for additional food distributions for June and July at Ashland City Elementary School, 24 Church, Cheap Hill Church of Christ, and The Ark; these will be similar to the ones that were held in March at area schools.
