For kids, summertime should mean food, friends and fun. But for kids who rely on school meals for their primary nutrition, summer can be a time of uncertainty about where and when they’ll have access to healthy food. Free, healthy meals are available to kids and teens at thousands of sites across the country.

Visit the CCSD Food & Nutrition site for more info, or view the flyer attached below the link.
