Every Monday and Wednesday New Lexington Schools will be providing free breakfast and lunch meals for all children ages 18 and under  in our area.  We are giving these meals in a drive through setting in front of New Lexington High School  and in front of Junction City Elementary to make it easier for families. This will make these grab and go meals easily accessible.  You will not need to get out of your vehicle to get the meals.  We will bring them to you.  We will keep you posted with future meal pick up dates and times.
