Looking Forward to Summer Boost Program

Twenty-nine school districts will be participating in this year’s Summer Boost: Reading and Mathematics Program, a partnership between the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), the Summer Food Service Program and the Children’s Reading Foundation.  The Summer Boost program will promote family participation in reading and math by giving away free books and fun items like wristbands, bookmarks and magnets, intended to motivate and remind families to read 20 minutes every day.  

Each participating district will receive about 1,000 books to distribute at their meal sites. Wayne County is among 29 other School Districts receiving the Summer Boost Program. Families interested in having their child participate should contact Wayne County local Summer Food Service Department for more information. Meal service sites within Wayne County are currently being determined and will be announced soon.

Summer Boost coordinators also will direct families to KDE’s online Summer Support webpages, which are available to all Kentucky families. The summer support webpages offer information and resources to encourage students and families to make learning a part of daily summer routines. Other resources available on the webpages include information for families and caregivers, along with literacy, mathematics, and gifted and talented resources.

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program

Wayne County Board of Education Receives USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) Grant Wayne County Board of Education is pleased to announce Walker Early Learning Center & Bell Elementary are recipients of the federal Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) funded and regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The FFVP provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options. The FFVP also encourages community partnerships to support the schools when they offer free fruits and vegetables to children during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to: • create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices • expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience • increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption • make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health School selection was based upon submitted applications from elementary schools that operate the National School Lunch Program and that have 50 percent or more of their students eligible for free/reduced-price meals. Priority was given to schools with the highest percentage of free and reduced-price eligible students. Kentucky received more than 3.8 million dollars in FFVP funding for the 2023 Federal Fiscal Year. Each participating school will receive funds to operate the program based on approximately $50 per student. The participating schools is listed below:


Site Name                                          Award Amount

Farm to School

Wayne County School Nutrition celebrates National Farm to School Month by bringing local, fresh, and healthy foods to students on October 25, 2023.


In 2010, Congress declared October National Farm to School Month, recognizing the important role farm to school plays in promoting well-being among children and strong local economies.

Farm to School programs have been sweeping across the nation for years now. From locally grown and produced foods on breakfast and lunch trays to school gardens, these programs help children learn about where food comes from, how it’s made, and how local farms impact local economies while also teaching them to be able to make healthy and nutritious choices. Children are more likely to choose these local products if they know where they came from, the person that grew them, or if they even had a hand in growing the food themselves. The younger the healthy choices start, the longer they will continue and contribute to the fight against childhood obesity. Farm to School is a program being implemented across the state and the Kentucky Department of Education has resources available to help connect schools with local farmers and producers. For more information about Farm to School in Kentucky, contact Heather Vankleeck at Learn more about the Farm to School movement at
