Concern for hungry children has garnered quick response from citizens and prompted the organization of the Community Summer Food Program in Crittenden County. Donations and manpower are still needed in an effort to serve lunch to those ages 0-18 between July 11 and Aug. 5. The local program is modeled after the Summer Food Service Program administered by the Kentucky Department of Education.
