Kids Eat-Free! summer meals program is offering lunch at eight San Angelo locations and one on Carlsbad in July and August. Meals will be served from July 5-Aug. 19.
The goal of the group is to feed as many children as possible when school is not in session during the summer. Since 2010, with the assistance of churches, organizations and individuals, the program says it has served more than 138,000 meals.
According to the organization, more than 60 percent of students in Tom Green County qualify for free and reduced meal programs. Additionally, one in every four homes with children experienced time where there was not enough money to purchase food.
