A free lunch program open to students and adults of the community started Monday.

Except for being closed July 4, the program will continue through July 27.

The lunches will be served from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday-Friday at Ward Central Elementary, 36 Pond St., and Westside Elementary, 1701 S. Second St.

Cabot Public Schools director of food services Erin Wilkes said the program is open to everyone. Each meal that is served to a person 18 years old or younger is reimbursed through the state Department of Human Services. A grant from “Share our Strengths” helps cover the costs of meals that are not reimbursed by DHS.
