Summer Food Program Offers Free Meals To Wichita Children

May 16, 2013

The Kansas State Department of Education and the USDA are sponsoring a summer food program again this year, for children up to 18 years old.

Thirty-seven schools, community centers, and churches throughout Wichita will offer meals without reservations. Participants can go to any of the locations to get breakfast or lunch; some locations serve both daily.

The free meal program begins May 29 and runs through July 26. There are no requirements to get a meal. Adults can buy lunch for $3.50, breakfast for $2, or a snack for $1.

Program organizers are aiming to help children keep access to regular, nutritious meals, even after the school year has ended.
