In response to schools temporarily closing, Re-Perks coffee shop in Great Bend announced Monday that free sack lunches for children would be available at the business. Owner Dennis Crouse said the sack lunches will be available from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Re-Perks, 1216 Main.
The service started Monday and Crouse said it would continue until school is back in session.
“With Kansas closing schools temporarily we understand that this may cause difficulties for some of the families in our community and those surrounding us,” Crouse said. “If you’re worried about your children being able to have a decent lunch, please stop by Re-Perks in Great Bend for a free, to go, sack lunch containing a sandwich, chips, fruit and a cookie. We are dedicated to the community and will do everything possible to help get through this, together, as a community.”
