Children fed through summer program

BILOXI, Miss.- The U.S. Department of Agriculture launched a summer food service program on Thursday that will provide almost 3 million free meals to underprivileged children. 

The program will give out roughly 41,000 meals daily, which will be about two meals a day per child enrolled in the program.

The USDA’s Robin Bailey says it “fills the gap” for kids who rely on schools free or reduced-price meals.

This program allows for children to be fed during the summer months when school in not in session. Meals will be available at schools, HUD multi-family housing complexes, recreation centers, low-income housing units, religious institutions, and other similarplaces.

Last summer about 2.5 million meals were handed out.
