Claremore Public Schools to offer summer lunches

CLAREMORE — Claremore Public Schools will offer a free, nutritious summer lunch program, available to children through 18 years of age.

As part of the Student Well-Being program, free lunches will be available at Claremont Elementary on weekdays June 6-July 22 from 11:30am – 12:30pm and at Westside Elementary School, Monday through Thursday, July 11-August 4 from 11:15am-noon. There will be no services on July 5th.

“We are excited to make this program available to our community,” said Pam Watson, director of child nutrition for Claremore Public Schools.

The service is part of the Sodexo Food Service Company’s Student Well Being program. Sodexo is the food service provider for Claremore Public Schools.

“Sodexo believes that there are five key areas that have the greatest impact on Student Well Being.  It is in these areas where our programs, services and strategic industry partnership are focused,” Watson said.

These areas include nutrition, achievement, environment, community and activity.

Children 18 years and younger will be provided a free lunch, adults may purchase a lunch for $3.25. Menus will be posted at the two elementary summer lunch sites.

Anyone with questions may contact the Claremore Public Schools Child Nutrition office at (918) 341-0705.
