Handing out lunch

Sweetwater County School District No. 1 nutrition service workers paused for a moment while handing out free breakfasts and lunches at Rock Springs Junior High School in March.

ROCK SPRINGS – Sweetwater County School District No. 1 shared details for the summer meals program.

The district will not have meals delivered on Monday, May 25, due to the Memorial Day holiday.

Beginning on Tuesday, May 26, meals will resume on schedule with two locations adjusted.
