A free meal program offered this past summer in the Park Rapids schools attracted more than just hungry children.

"A lot of families came," said Food Services Director Pat Stearns in a report to the Park Rapids School Board Monday night.


Stearns reported that the district served 1,225 free breakfasts, 1,818 free lunches and 420 snacks.

"It was a benefit to the food shelf," which reported a decreased need during the six weeks the school program ran, Stearns said.
