A Greenwood family will have more money to pay their bills by taking their three children to school for some of their meals this summer.

Cassandra Robinson has lived in the Clark-Pleasant school district for two years with her husband and three kids. Earlier this year she was concerned about how her family would afford the cost of food for everyone while her husband, a truck driver, was out of work for two months.

This summer Robinson found out about the summer feeding program at Pleasant Crossing Elementary School. The school provides free lunch to anyone 18 and under during the summer. And that means Robinson and her husband can save about $200 per week on groceries.

“Financially it’s saved us. Times are hard,” she said.
