Converted school bus delivers meals to kids

The Jefferson County Public Schools bus has been delivering meals for the last month and is an expansion of a mobile lunch program, which feeds children in needy areas.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ky.—A young boy paced outside the rusting family van at Autumn Lake Mobile Home Park in Valley Station, eagerly awaiting the bright yellow bus. Finally, it pulled into sight.

"I see it. I see it," he yelped Monday, trotting toward the bus. "It's here."

For the last month, a Jefferson County Public Schools bus has delivered lunch to area children, providing a nutritious meal that for some might be the main meal of the day. The bus is an expansion of a mobile lunch program that began last year as a way to feed more children in needy areas.
