Leon County Schools partnering with 4R to distribute meals to families
Leon County Schools has partnered with 4Roots and 4R Restaurant Group, of 4 Rivers Smokehouse fame, to supplement the district's current free meals food program while schools are shuttered during the coronavirus.
The Feed the Need Florida program, which is sponsored by 4R Restaurant Group, launched in Orange County in March. LCS is the second county district in the state to partner with the program.
