Cascades Blog: Feeding the children this summer

Seven of the nine Loudoun County public schools serving free meals throughout the summer are located in Sterling. They are partners in the county’s PowerFuel food program, which is part of a Department of Agriculture project to help hungry kids.

Any child younger than age 18 is permitted to come to the schools to eat a meal. No registration is required. Meals are available to all children, regardless of their family income.

From July 5 through Aug. 3, Dominion High School serves breakfast from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and lunch from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

From July 10-July 28, breakfast is served from 8-9 a.m. and lunch is served from 12-1 p.m. at the following schools: Forest Grove Elementary, Guilford Elementary, Rolling Ridge Elementary, Sterling Elementary, Sugarland Elementary and Sully Elementary.

The meal program is currently underway at Leesburg Elementary, where breakfast is served from 8-9 a.m. and lunch is served from noon to 1 p.m. Both meals will be served at the school through July 14.
Meal times may be adjusted, according to PowerFuel program information. Loudoun’s PowerFuel sites and serving times are online atlcpshealthycafe.org. For information, call 571-252-1010.

Thank you, Mrs. Elliott

Early childhood educator Karen Elliott is retiring from her teaching position at Rolling Ridge Elementary after 42 years at the school, working mostly with preschool and Kindergarten students. She was the last of the school’s original teachers still on the staff.

July 4 in Loudoun

Nearly two decades ago, Dulles Town Center offered some majestic fireworks displays each year in celebration of July 4. I still remember a chance encounter with a woman from India the year the displays ended. She was driving around the neighborhoods near the mall and, noticing the empty streets and sidewalks, she asked me if she was in the right place to see the fireworks. We had a brief conversation that reminded me about one of the best things about this country: There are many people here from many nations who love our American celebrations just as much as we do.
