Children should not go hungry in summer

When school is out for the summer, children who receive meals at school or in after-school programs do not have to lose access to a reliable source of nutrition.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program teams up with local organizations like schools, churches, community centers, and camps to offer up to two healthy meals per day to eligible kids. In neighborhoods where more than half of children qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, summer meals are available to any child under 18.

If you know a family struggling to provide healthy meals this summer, pass it on. You can learn more at www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks.
