Summer feeding program reaching fewer

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._A summer feeding program in Duncan is unfortunately now reaching fewer children after they stopped delivering the meals this summer and tried something new.

The Well Outreach Inc. ‘Spokes for Hope’ in the past used volunteers on bikes to take packed lunches to children in need. This year, the program set up feeding sites throughout the city in hopes the children would come to them. But just a few weeks in, organizers say the program's numbers are down, they're contributing the decline in numbers to a lack in need where the sites have been set up.

The program's director says they have plenty of food and would love to feed more children.
