Club expands student meal program

Lebanon — The Lebanon Area Boys & Girls Club will now be able to feed more children in the Kids At the Table program, thanks to an expanded kitchen and dining area that was unveiled at the club yesterday.

Community leaders were on hand Tuesday to celebrate the recently completed expansion at the club, and even enjoyed a soup-and-sandwich lunch prepared in the kitchen afterward.

Angie Veatch, the club’s executive director, said the expansion was necessary to serve children in the KAT program, which provides free and nutritionally balanced dinners five days a week to club members. They have grown since the program started in 2010, feeding 45 to 50 children daily, to feeding an average of 105 kids a day now. And the kitchen and dining space in the club did not support that.

“I’m so excited to show it off and to have what we have now,” Veatch said Tuesday. The project doubled the size of the kitchen and dining areas, and added a brand new pantry and program room.
