When school is out for summer break, some families struggle to put food on the table.

The Summer Food Service Program, which is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Child Nutrition Program, is dedicated to ensuring children have access to a healthy breakfast and lunch each day.

The program is open to those 18 and younger. Children will receive a free meal at breakfast and lunch. You do not have to register.

For adults you are coming with children, meals are discounted as range from $1 to $2.
