Getting children nutritional food is only part of the program. Enlow said in Granbury other programs work in conjunction with the summer lunch program and have teachers interact with kids and check on them. Studies by the Granbury ISD show that children in the summer lunch program retain more over the summer and are more focused and ready to start the new school year.
“Food is just the starting program and I really believe we are going to change kids’ lives in Weatherford,” Enlow said. “There is simply so much growth potential here and the community and its churches have been so very supportive along with the school district.”
A volunteer orientation is scheduled for May 29 at 5:30 p.m. inside the First United Methodist sanctuary, 301 S. Main St., in Weatherford.
