ALABASTER – The Alabaster City School System has released an updated list of dates and times for its expanded summer feeding program, which will kick off May 31 at several locations throughout the city.

Through the summer feeding program the past two years, ACS has opened its Meadow View Elementary School campus each day for children and adults to eat breakfast and lunch. Children eat free through the program and adults eat for a few dollars per meal.

This summer, ACS will again host the program at MVES, but will also expand to Thompson Intermediate School, the Alabaster YMCA, Kids First Awareness Community Center and multiple local churches.

Kids 18 and younger eat for free, and adults can eat breakfast for $2 and lunch for $4.

During its March 14 meeting, the Alabaster Board of Education voted unanimously to accept a $41,550 bid from The Bus Center to purchase a new bus to deliver food to all summer feeding program sites. The bus purchase was covered by a $50,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and the United Way of Central Alabama.
