United Way of Lee County began serving summer meals in 2017.   Changes to this year’s program, ‘Summer Eats” will allow for more children to benefit.  Kids and teens will be able to get a grab and go meal from one of eight sites throughout Lee County. Meals will feature kid-friendly foods like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, crackers, granola bars, and fresh fruit.
