The United Way of Franklin County will be partnering with several organizations to provide our students grab-n-go lunches on Friday, April 10th & Friday, April 17th. These are both scheduled days off school. Lunch pick-up will be at the same time & schools where kids are currently picking up lunches. They will not have rural delivery, but will have those free lunches available for the rural students at Sunflower Elementary School. We are appreciative to have a community that cares and is stepping up to provide these services on both Friday, April 10th & Friday, April 17th.
